The lines for receiving free meals at Frederick County Public Schools locations are sparse. Passersby aren’t seeing many children in the lines. This writer passed two, observed were two families at one location and no one at the other. Also overheard, rather observed, was a meal recipient walking home and throwing in the woods the foods he didn’t want proclaiming “don’t want that”, “not eating this”. Your taxes paid for that. Odds are good, right now you are laid off or unemployed, but some ungrateful person decided the meal you provided for them wasn’t good enough to eat, or take home for someone else.
