If all the kids will be able to have breakfast and lunch without the school free lunch program, why is the program still in existence?

It started out by the gov't to get in the education business with the 'free milk' program. If you want their money, then you have to follow their rules. Education isn't even in the US Constitution. Education is left to the states. The only way for the federal gov't to get its hands into educaiton was to tie it to funds. It is known as the 'power of the purse'. He who holds the purse strings holds the power. It started with milk and now we can't feed our children without the help of gov't. There is so much graft in this program. Plus, the addition of reading teachers is tied to Title I funds. I guess people who don't need free and reduced lunch can always read. This is how we let the gov't in education where they didn't belong. They bought us.

I haven't seen the other questions so not sure if I'm getting idea, but if the kids are being provided breakfast and lunch it would be with the free lunch program.
As for the program not being needed and assumming the school itself paid for the meals, there is quite a difference in paying for a small fractions of breakfasts and lunches for a few days than for providing them to all who qualify each day.
