Kids wont be able to learn properly, so… prefect for future low wage earners, keeping our private prison’s filled, and easily deceived about political issues against their own interest, and plenty of cannon fodder for future wars. And as a added bonus, more will die from obesity long before retirement age. I’m sure there’s more, but what a financial wind fall for the 1%.

No kidding, we need to educate ourselves about food management. If anything, when something like these programs are modified it should be for something better.
“Roughly one third of the food produced in the world for human consumption every year — approximately 1.3 billion tonnes — gets lost or wasted . Food losses and waste amounts to roughly US$ 680 billion in industrialized countries and US$ 310 billion in developing countries.”
Hunger produces a class of workers with reduced mental ability. An added benefit for capitalists is these workers produce large families of easily exploitable labor.
