Nullification!

By Donald Sensing

District drops federal lunch program

Lunch at Fort Thomas Independent Schools may include more French fries, fewer vegetables and larger portions this year. One thing that won't be on the menu: federal dollars.

The Campbell County district is opting out of the federal school lunch program, forfeiting hundreds of thousands of dollars in federal funding.
Not technically nullification in the historic sense because the federal requirements are tied to receipt of federal funds. If districts don't take the money they don't have to follow the requirements. But significant nonetheless because of the large amount of money involved.

When I am president the federal government shall issue no dictates whatsoever to school districts about what must be on menus.

This is what the district decided it would not be mandated to serve the children (HT: American Digest):
