Feds require doctor's note to send packed lunch to school
I cannot tell you how hyped up I am at this note my friend Linda received today from her child’s school.

Her child has to have DOCTORS NOTE to send a packed lunch to school.

And does anyone notice the irony in the “health coordinator” and enforcement of no bagged lunches?

Re: Feds require doctor's note to send packed lunch to school
We did this yesterday, I think this goes all the way back to April 2011 and is a school in Chicago.

I’ll tell ya though it might be something different, on Monday they banned my kid’s high school from passing out female hygiene products even in emergencies, they can still get free condoms though. So who knows what changed, all sorts of food rules also in district, can’t buy french-fries without buying a meal, can’t get fries every day has to be a salad every other day…the kids just don’t eat, they drive out and get fast food, all because of Michele’s lunch programs.



Have to hear this to believe it SNIP; Principal Elsa Carmona said her intention is to protect students from their own unhealthful food choices.

"Nutrition wise, it is better for the children to eat at the school," Carmona said. "It's about the nutrition and the excellent quality food that they are able to serve (in the lunchroom). It's milk versus a Coke. But with allergies and any medical issue, of course, we would make an exception."

Carmona said she created the policy six years ago after watching students bring "bottles of soda and flaming hot chips" on field trips for their lunch. Although she would not name any other schools that employ such practices, she said it was fairly common.

A Chicago Public Schools spokeswoman said she could not say how many schools prohibit packed lunches and that decision is left to the judgment of the principals.


"While there is no formal policy, principals use common sense judgment based on their individual school environments," Monique Bond wrote in an email. "In this case, this principal is encouraging the healthier choices and attempting to make an impact that extends beyond the classroom."

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.

I'm only human, it's my biggest flaw.

We must all realize a sink a chair and a pillow are all luxuries of home and a soldiers helmet takes the place of all three.

Bump for the truth of the issue.
