Who says there's no such thing as a free lunch?

In Oregon there is, at least for kids. We found out that our local elementary school offers free breakfast and lunch for any children ages 1-18 during the summer. Income doesn't matter. Funding is based on how many children used the service the previous year, so using the program actually helps the school maintain funding. I took my kids down to the school for lunch yesterday. They enjoyed hanging out with the other kids, they got a great lunch, and I didn't have to cook or clean up. Most importantly, it helped me save a bit on my grocery bill. We'll be visiting the school a lot more this summer, I'm sure.
