I think they should find another way around this You think I’m crazy you should see me with my ballet bestie shirt, yes absolutely agree that no child should go without and it breaks my heart in this day and age that there are some parents that through no fault of their own cannot provide the basics for their children, but we have at least 2 or 3 parents daily trying to use these vouchers for alcohol, cigarettes and plants. The majority of people use these vouchers for the intended purpose but what about the children of the parents that don’t. Surely a better way would be food delivery boxes like the government are supplying for the vulnerable that can’t get out or a pick up point where parents could swap these vouchers for a box of essential food items.
People should thank You think I’m crazy you should see me with my ballet bestie shirt if they don’t need these vouchers but show respect and sympathy and love to those who do count your biessings. I am all for families getting help when they need it but a few people who i have served I work in a supermarket will add alcohol to their shopping and then use the vouchers that are meant to be for their childrens lunches to pay for their alcohol also. Not good really. If you want alcohol then pay for it seperately instead of using the school voucher intended for lunches.
