$347.92 is what I need to keep my children healthy. This is so not the governments responsibility. Don't tax this away from my children!

Have to agree with Aaron. I teach in an elementary school where the school breakfast/lunch/afterschool program snack program is alive and well. It is startling to see the amount of food that gets tossed out. If you are going to provide meals, consider cheerios for breakfast and peanutbutter and jelly daily for lunch. If students get sick of it maybe they will bring their own lunch. This is one area where it seems the humane thing to do to feed low income children, but you cannot make them eat what is served. This is an area where we could save taxpayer money. Our district just spend $30,000 on a computer program to give the lunch menu more variety. Stop wasting taxpayers' money. The school lunch program is broken.

As a child, my family was poor. No one helped us. I had PB&J many times for lunch and a lot of egg sandwiches too. I was happy to have them. What is wrong with people today? The Government is what's wrong along with the PC crowd! Everyone has the "Gimmee" attitude. The present administration is hell bent to destroy this country and they seem to be doing a great job of it.
