As our children go back to school, many parents grow increasingly concerned about the school lunch program. Most school lunches cost between $2.50 and $3. With government subsidies through the United States Department of Agriculture, public schools receive $2.57 for a free lunch, $2.17 for a reduced-price lunch and 24 cents for a paid lunch. That adds up to about $9 billion to feed 30 billion children each year. Ironically, most of the money pays for janitors, cafeteria expenses and other nonfood costs, as well as lunch.
So what do our kids get for $2.57?
