I don't quite understand. If the children are hungry sure, but why doesn't EVERY FAMILY have to provide something small as an extra snack for THEIR OWN CHILD
I can relate because our lunch is at 10.30am this year and I hate that. However I write a general note at the beginning of the year and within
it I say we must have a 'vege break' and they must supply something. I give the parents examples eg. carrots, celery, cucumber, raw beans, corn kernels. I insist on it as an expectation (compulsory) and they all do it. I also write that it is a class or grade level initiative and that it will continue daily.
Surely this is easier than organising a community snack.
