And if the food will be cold if the caregivers are last to get through the line, isn't that also true if able bodied adults are last?
People have pointed out that, proportionally speaking, there are generally few elderly/disabled/young kids compared to the general populace. So while a disabled person might take a bit longer to get their food, on the whole it probably takes the disabled group less time to get their food than EVERYONE in the general populace getting theirs. So no, the food will not have as much time to go cold if the able-bodied adults are last.
You know, when I board an airplane, it takes much, much, much longer for General Boarding to take their seats than it does for preboarding passengers.
Hungry children are unhappy children.
Ugh, yes. Let the little ones get their food first, I'd rather that than listen to them whine about how hungry they are.
