4) Place children in foster care immediately.

I've never met a "poor" person that didn't smoke cigarettes. Most people smoke between 1/2 and 2 packs a day; that's $3.50 to $14.00 a day. Most drink beer regularly. Most smoke marijuana.

Let's be real here. "The Poor" do not exist. Everyone has the means to achieve a level of survivability, but they'd rather spend their money on luxuries, such as illegal drugs. And don't say they're "addicted" because they don't. Who are you to tell someone else they're addicted? They have a "bad judgement" problem and not a "drug problem". They also have a "irresponsible breeding" problem, as well as a "surrounded by idiot leftist enablers giving them someone else's money" problem.

Back in "Ye Olden Dayes", the evil Patriarch would be fully aware of the deficiencies of these people, how foolish they were and how stupid it was to give them rewards for their bad and stupid behavior, and the Patriarch would require that they perform some kind of constructive activity before getting any kind of financial support.

And THAT is why the Left hates the Patriarchy so much. It requires performance in exchange for resources, and the Federal God-Government does not. It gives these parasites whatever they want, and for nothing. Anyways, that's why they hate the Patriarchy, and why we must return to it in order to ensure our collective survival. These parasites exist by definition on a life-track that is non-sustainable, otherwise we'd call them "constructive members of society" instead. Having direct, first-hand and human control over the distribution of community resources is the only way to make certain that they are used wisely and for the betterment of all, instead of the betterment of a class of a select few loudmouthed liars and whiners, that make-up fabricated circumstances in order to prey upon the compassion of weak-minded people who have achieved control over other people's resources via democratic process.
False. Don't just make stuff up and post it. It is impossible to live on one minimum wage salary. I bet you also think mom should be able to stay home no matter what, too.

Even better, call the food bank and ask what their needs are for a particular month. The one I volunteer at provides a list. This month, it was tuna. I shared the message with my local contacts, and collected a ton of it.

I don't participate in random food collections. I find that far too often, as you said, it's people clearing out their pantries.

The comment that this is an ugly thread - I don't think so. 90% or so of the people on this thread don't want children going hungry, reply back with real information to the uncaring few who oppose the program. This is a really good thread because it shows most, here at least, care, and maybe things will change in your country if enough people care and will make that known.

It only looks "ugly" to people who insist everyone must agree on HOW to do things. I don't want kids to be hungry and fully support having food at school for them, simple cost effective food and as much as they want. I do have issue with putting the problem on feeding hungry kids in America (and other misc. social ills) on the school system though.
