The free school lunches policy is out of whack. Its impact on poverty reduction is ridiculous. In one turn, adding free school lunches program (less than a billion dollars) solved my massive homelessness and poverty problems. Its impact is many times greater than state housing, unemployement or a public school system. I think this must surely be the result of a typo in the data files. I found the mulitplier on poverty variable to be .25x, where public schools only came in at .10x and state housing only .18x (not looking directly at them so can’t promise these numbers are 100%, but it was along those lines.)
Anyone else have thoughts on this. Maybe Im unaware of some real life impact school lunch programs have on society.
