The school district where one of my kids goes paid for the milk & some food for the rest of the year in advance & the supplier delivers the little boxes regardless. When picking up the first homework weekly packet the people at the school tossed in a few boxed lunches & a dozen boxes of milks & juices. We told them that we didn’t get free lunches & didn’t want the food, milk & juice. They replied that the stuff was going to go bad & they had to get rid of it because they were tired of throwing it away when it expired. So we took ours to the food bank & they said they weren’t accepting any more prepared meals or small boxes of milk but would take the 8 small juice boxes, small cereal containers & uncut fresh produce. So for the last 6 Wednesdays we have been getting free milk, prepared sandwiches & other food crap that public schoolkids eat. If we are going across town for something we will drop off what we can at the foodbank but it really isn’t worth a 40 minute round trip drive to drop off 4 apples, 8 juice boxes, peanutbutter crackers & sugary individual cereal boxes.
My wife is making more off of unemployment than she did with her job & we get free milk & mystery meat sandwiches now? There’s a lot of weird shit going on with this pandemic fiasco IMO.
