It’s all very nice that Mr. Bethge wants to feed the kids a free breakfast, but why can’t their parents do this? It’s their responsibility. How much does a box of cereal and a gallon of milk cost? Or oatmeal? I’m sorry, but I grew up in Shamokin with only a father working in the coal mines and a housewife/mother and they both managed to feed my brother and myself very well and clothe both of us. They also saw to it that we got to the beginning of the school year with new “school clothes” and school supplies. They knew it was their responsible to assure that we grew up better than they had it during the Depression.
