Please don't eliminate this Department. This is beyond the states. Look at our state. I don't trust them to have the best interests of my children in mind. My daughter attended a wonderful public school. She enjoys a free breakfast and lunch at her school every day. Her school does that for all the kids. It is a huge help to my family. I know it's a huge help to children who may only get their meals at school. Please think about others when dealing with education.
