2019......Kern County was the top agricultural county last year, based on sales of ag goods that totaled more than $7.25 billion....yeah folks in Bako shouldn't be going hungry

Inconvenient Truth

So, schools are both feeding and indoctrinating children.
All they need now is to provide them some clothes and find them a place to sleep and parents will be completely obsolete.

Feeding children nutritious meals shouldn't be a controversial/political issue. We should feed the children. If you want to complain about feeding adults, then go for it.
