12. In the 60s, kids worked in the lunch room
to get a free lunch. Everybody else had to pay or bring one from home. We got one hot lunch a year on Thanksgiving. It was my parents special treat to us. The rest of the year we got a bologna sandwich, 4 cookies, and milk in a thermos. Lots and lots of us grew up being humiliated with a sandwich at lunch. :crazy:

Also, in the 60s, there wasn't any food stamps, or WIC, or free breakfast and lunch. I imagine the implementation of some of these other programs probably changed the way they did the lunch program.
