NEW YORK (PIX11) — The federal government will spend $30 million on school lunches as part of Hurricane Sandy relief aid. The city’s 1.1 million students can all get a free school lunch every day this month — whether or not their homes were damaged by the hurricane.
It sounds nice, but critics wonder why kids, who don’t need any help are getting free lunches when the money could go toward other Hurricane Sandy-related needs.
