If we all say that about everything taxes will keep on rising with less to show for it
Since everyone else is saying that, there's no reason I should be the one left holding the bag.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Not everyone.  ;)
Financially - better
Emotionally - better
Home all day - same.

Financially - much better (meaning it's better because of the pandemic)
Emotionally - worse
Home all day - better
I'm not who you think I am.

Youíre right, on an individual basis you should probably take whatís available. That doesnít mean that itís a good idea on a societal level, which is why this
I don't view it as "food give outs" its the regular school lunch program which is funded by taxes at least in NJ. Its a win win for everyone. The schools are making money and there is more than enough food to go around.

I went shopping yesterday, and the store was a ghost town, the groceries are the only ones losing out

Haven't seen it so empty before!
THANK YOU HASHEM!!!

What time did you go?

+100 and (depending on the kids I guess) they are excited to eat whatever it is because it comes from "school".

This is because your location is "not Lakewood".  My kids turn their noses at almost everything we got here in Lakewood, and I don't blame them.

The food at distributions has been pretty good overall, and if you donít like what theyíre serving at one any day you can just go to another.

Most of it is food straight from restaurants.

We can make all sorts of nice arguments such as. One is obligated to pick up food in order to benefit our local schools as we are required to support our local institutions. This would apply even if you will not eat it.
It just seems that you like contrarian view points.

I think saying win-win without paying attention to the ones actually paying for it is slightly disingenuous. Do you believe in Medicare for all, or other forms of socialism?

It just seems that you like contrarian view points.
What gives you that impression? Because I disagree with you?

Thereís no reason that someone should have to think twice before taking. Do corporations think and decide if they need the tax breaks to survive before taking? And lunches arenít even pennies compared to the billions they get

Did someone suggest individuals should think twice before taking? Please do point to where you saw that.

Also, do you believe that because corporations do things those actions must be right? Or if people does wrong on a large scale that permits committing similar wrongs on a smaller scale?
