School officials last year decided to remove Londonderry High School from the National School Lunch Program after nutrition regulations championed by first lady Michelle Obama resulted in a significant drop in cafeteria sales, and a significant increase in food waste, the New Hampshire Union Leader reports.
The move meant the high school forfeited federal subsidies that come with the program, but officials increased lunch prices and introduced new offerings students love to make up the difference, and then some.
“About 33 percent of students participated in the school lunch program this September, up from 29 percent last September when the school was still part of the federal program,” according to the news site.
The high school’s successful transition, however, apparently doesn’t sit well with federal bureaucrats at the U.S. Department of Education, who apparently issued a threat to district officials recently in hopes of changing their minds.
The Obama administration has successfully weaponized every aspect of the federal bureaucracy to wage lawfare against the very population it purports to serve.
