Taxpayers will pay for two meals and a snack daily for every student in Detroit Public Schools, including those who do not qualify for federal subsidies, according to The Detroit News.

“I think there is a question if this is a good use of taxpayer money,” Mike Van Beek, director of education policy, told The News. “Under this program, it appears we would be subsidizing school lunches and meals to students who currently don’t qualify under the federal program.”
