Ore value of community or the value of stewardship apply to this problem?

A conservative member of the state legislature has introduced a bill that would eliminate the state paying for breakfast for poor children in the public schools. He contends that this is another  entitlement program that allows abuse of the system and keeps families from taking responsibility. He says that it is time to take a stand against such liberal  tax and spend programs. How would either core value of community or the value of stewardship apply to the problem? How would Joseph Plummer say that this is tied to his piece about Changing Values,or if you prefer, how would Fishmans The Town that B.F. Skinner Boxedapply to the problem?
