Don't they get food stamps?

Since the library has a million dollars in the bank they should provide breakfast and dinner.

I think it is nice, you may see it as more free stuff, but to a child who might not get one decent meal a day, it is nice. I pay taxes and probably more than you "Nice" and I am happy the money goes to helping those who can't help themselves, meaning the children, maybe not some adults who could, but certainly the children. I would rather see the money go to programs like this than a lot of the other wasteful things. Plus, there are so many hardships on children around here, so many things that can and will drag them down and make them feel negative, why pick on this one positive for them.
