198. Nope
Just a typed note with her cafeteria number on it. It happened to several of our friends, and we got together and complained. We were pretty insulted. Bread and water. I didn't know our schools had turned into prisons.

What they do now is send a note home saying that their cafeteria account is low; please send your child with a packed lunch or $1.35 to cover tomorrow's lunch.

It *is* vile. That is the perfect word. Just the idea of sending my four year old through the cafeteria line, only to get a roll and water while her friends were feasting on nuggets, pudding, fruit, salad, and milk was enough to make me dig through the sofa cushions, car, sock drawer, etc. to find five dollars to get her through the week.
