Because we live in a state that feeds criminals, and starves children.
Hawaii is finally introducing a bill that would prohibit schools from denying a student a meal during the following situations:
"Within the first thirty days of the first semester of a school year while the student's application for free or reduced lunch is being processed."
"Within one week following a student's meal fund account reaching a zero or negative balance."
This bill is being introduced because for decades the Hawaii Department of Education has been allowing their schools to deny student's a lunch.
