:Let's pursue this off-list.  I advise that school lunch finance was a peculiar
interest of mine during my tenure on the local public school district board
of directors.  I'm not ignorant of the declared goals addressing the

the mandated processes that doesn't get nearly the amount of media
attention that so important a function deserves. Happy to compare notes.
