    Our canon went over to our church's partner school to find out what else we could do to help out. This is a school where all the kids live in the projects and 100% qualify for free breakfast and lunch. The principal told him she had observed kids, starting around Thursday, starting to stash food in their pockets. When she asked why, they said there was no food in their house to eat over the weekend. So we started our Blessings in the Backpack program, where we give backpacks of food to feed a family over the weekend to about two dozen of the neediest families.

    I cannot even imagine focusing on school work while worrying about when you will next eat. As a child, I had the advantage of knowing I would come home to a hot lunch every day at noon and that there would be a full dinner on the table at 6. So did Mitt Romney — and he doesn't get that some kids aren't that lucky.

    Take the "Can't(or)" out of Congress. Support E. Wayne Powell in Va-07.
