While I hesitate to be judgmental about these matters, there are single, widowed, and divorced parents with children who do not have two incomes and a young adult male in the household

There are state programs where the kids can get breakfast and lunch at school for free.

There are 30 days in a month x 3 meals a day= 90 meals per person, per month.

5 days a week in school x 4 weeks a month= 20 days a month x 2 meals= 40 meals per person, per month, free from school

Saw this story this a.m. The hungry couple was using a smart phone to check when their card was funded for the month. Wonder how much the cell service monthly charge cost and how much food it would buy?
