Ducks are cool
(The picture is talking about school lunch and why it should not be free.)
You are right, there is no such thing as free.
There is, however, a thing called taxes. Taxes are payed by the citizens of a country to finance things the goverment are in charge of. One of theese things could be school lunch. It could also be health care and education.
Where I live, in Sweden, school is free. Everything you need for school is free up until a certain grade called “University” (ages 19+). But you can get a small sum of money every month and take a loan if you need it. And the thing that costs in university is not the education itself but the textbooks.
Everything you need for school is financed by taxes, everything from food to occasional trips. 
Health care is free, except for a small sum you pay when you visit the doctor which can range from 7 to 30 dollars depending on where in Sweden you live and which council it is that takes care of the hospital you visit. Large operations do not cost, nor does things like repairing a broken bone. (Well, as long as you are insured but that is not expensive here either.)

And contrary to what many Americans seem to believe, this has not ruined or in anyway made our country a bad one to live in. We are one of the healthies countries in the world, and we also have a high standard of living. This is not exclusive to Sweden either. Look at graphs over the healthiest and best countries to live in in the world. Most of the countries high on the list have tax-paid healthcare and education.
to conclude; To pay for childrens lunch with tax money, or have tax financed healthcare, is in no way a bad thing and will only make it easier for people to survive. (duh.) 
Most importantly; The concept of tax paid education and tax payed healthcare is not what is killing people. It is the opposite of it.
