how can you have any pudding if you don't eat your meat?

School's food is the only option for some kids -
Little Village Academy on Chicago's West Side, students are not allowed to pack lunches from home. Unless they have a medical excuse, they must eat the food served in the cafeteria.
Any school that bans homemade lunches also puts more money in the pockets of the district's food provider, Chartwells-Thompson. The federal government pays the district for each free or reduced-price lunch taken, and the caterer receives a set fee from the district per lunch.
During a recent visit to the school, dozens of students took the lunch but threw most of it in the garbage uneaten.
how many rights are you willing to give up?
