For more than 15 years, the US Department of Agriculture’s Summer Food Service Program has supplied hot and cold meals to Alhambra children who cannot afford to eat healthy food during the summer. Pasadena Star News reports that more than 50 percent of students from Alhambra Unified School District qualify for free and reduced price lunch. In addition, children will be able to participate in activities such as playing board games, sports, creating arts and crafts. This year's new addition is puppet shows and dance tournaments. The free lunch program runs from June 3 to August 9.

  1. I am not against this, but let me make one thing clear: NOTHING is FREE. Money has to be borrowed, taken in taxes by the government, or printed by the federal reserve to pay for these things.

    Ironically, it was Milton Friedman – Nobel Prize winning economist who said: “There is no such thing as a free lunch”
