breakfast or lunch? I mean, sending them to school without anything in their lunchbox?
There is a radio station that is collecting money for an organisation that runs breakfast clubs in low socioeconomic areas. Which is great, because whatever reason a child is not fed breakfast, it isn't their fault.
But I can't seem to understand how someone could send their kid to school without anything at all in their lunch box. I know times are tough and Centrelink is not heaps, but surely it is enough to buy a $1 loaf of bread from Coles. Baked beans are less than $1 (cheap brand), you can usually get a bag of pasta for next to nothing. Surely a couple of slices bread with vegemite isnt worth a fortune.
Or is it because parents arent educated to know how to feed a family on the cheap?
Im really interested in people's answers, because I am genuinely intrigued by how this can happen, in this country.
