A child is looking inside of a white paper lunch bag.

“The Waukesha Board of Education opted out of a federal program in June that gives all students free lunch. Waukesha was the only district in the state to opt out…. Karin Rajnicek, a board member said, “I feel like this is a big problem, and it’s really easy to get sucked into and become spoiled and think, it’s not my problem any more, it’s everyone else’s problem to feed my children.”
