Question….I know we are to save receipts, but yesterday we got food from Luna’s Mexican Restaurant in St Francis and did not get a receipt and I’m sure it was from Cinco de Mayo. I did take a photo. Does that help?

I’m wondering if the free lunches from the school district are for those who can no longer afford to feed their children or for everyone. I know of some families who are not suffering financially and bringing their kids everyday for lunch. It just doesn’t seem right.
They are indeed open to all South Milwaukee children, similar to their traditional summer meal program, and I support that. It’s a great thing they are doing, reflecting that more than half of the kids in our district qualify for free or reduced lunch from the federal government (well over half in some places). How would you means test it anyway? It would be a logistical nightmare.
So lets see, SM Mayor allows close contact, within 6 feet of each other to make, prepare food to the needy, people preparing food we eat, yet you can’t pray in churchs next to each other? Notice in the photo, people with arms around each other and no social distancing in providing city services? See the scam?
