Part of the feeding will be subsidized with a flat rate and the rest will be paid by the parents/guardians. It is emphasized that, for lunch, bringing food from home is prohibited, both because of the risk of it spoiling and for issues related to cultivating healthy attitudes and avoiding inequality.
