The Brandon Valley School District plans to hire two part-time people to monitor the kids at Robert Bennis and Fred Assam elementaries so they don’t throw away as much food as they do now at lunchtime.
Do you think this is a good idea?
Apparently, the kids are throwing away a lot of vegetables and fruit, which the federal government is saying they must take on their plates in the new school lunch guidelines.
Some may say that hiring more people is a waste of money. Others might say that it’s worth it to spend $14,000 in wages to save $50,000 in food.
What are your thoughts?
