Feds Order School to Ban Packed Lunches Without Doctor’s Note

Infowars | October 24, 2013

By Paul Joseph Watson

A school in Richmond, Virginia is following federal government instructions by telling parents that they need to have a doctor’s note in order for their children to be allowed to bring packed lunches to school, another example of how the nanny state is encroaching via the public education system.


A letter featured on the website instructs parents that packed lunches must be accompanied with a physician’s note.

Dear Parents,

I have received word from Federal Programs Preschool pertaining to lunches from home. Parents are to be informed that students can only bring lunches from home if there is a medical condition requiring a specific diet, along with a physicians note to that regard.

I am sorry for any inconvenience. If you have any questions concerning this matter, please contact Stephanie [redacted] the Health Coordinator for Federal Programs Preschool at [redacted].


Ms. [redacted]

The letter also includes a handwritten note from a teacher which reads, “Ms Brooks, Please do not send a lunch to school unless a doctor’s note is sent in connection with this letter.” The identity of the school remains unknown, but it is situated in Richmond, Virginia.

The Federal Programs Preschool initiative is funded primarily by the Head Start Program, a Department of Health and Human Services scheme that provides education and nutritional support for children from low income families. Under Federal Programs Preschool, children are provided with breakfast, lunch and a snack.

    What are some possible reasons for this? Lunches from home could contain something “dangerous”? Food vendors providing food to schools for school lunch programs via government contracts could lose money?

  • Dan Foresman says:

    Considering what most lunches consist of, in general, I’d assume its like choosing which gun you want to get shot by. But for someone who is trying to keep their kid GMO free and healthy, it’s a serious attempt at poisoning their children. I would bet money those aren’t organic meals, and yes, the vendors want a guarantee of customers for their stuff. Ooh Monsanto, you are the grease smeared everywhere as I try and pick my way through life in my white suit!

  • Gretchen @ lunch ideas for kids says:

    I’m not agree and I can’t support this kind of notice from school authority..Is that mean that parents can provide harmful foods? Never, It can’t be..No parents want to harm their own kids..So This kind of actions should be cancelled by school authority ,,
