Since you care so much you should start a cheese sandwich factory, and feed all the hungry children of the world.
I hope you never collect unemployment or never get old. The fact is the school is collecting federal funds. if they do not want to abide by the laws concerning those funds then they should stop collecting the funds in the first place.
ojh by the way even the company released an apology
"Whitsons Culinary Group
To the Attleboro Community:
Whitsons School Nutrition has issued a statement apologizing to the students and the school community and we are in the process of conducting a full investigation. Please be assured that the individuals responsible for this were acting on their own and not under the direction of Whitsons School Nutrition. Whitsons’ standard operating procedure is to follow the district’s policy on handling unpaid meal balances. Our role is to collect these funds on the district’s behalf and deposit them into the school lunch fund, while following the district’s policy. In the absence of a formal policy approved by the board, we follow the written directives the district. If we receive no written directive, our policy is to serve a full and complete meal to all students, regardless of their outstanding meal balances.... At Attleboro, the informal approach agreed upon over the past four years has been to alert the district when a student’s account is five meals overdue. The district communicates with the parents and, in the meantime, our staff has been instructed to provide an alternate lunch, such as a cheese sandwich entrée and the other components of a complete meal, including fruit, vegetable and milk. When we learned of this incident Tuesday afternoon, we redirected our staff to provide a full meal (with no restrictions) to all children, regardless of outstanding meal balances, until the district has approved a formal policy, which will be clearly communicated to the school community. Again, Whitsons apologizes for this incident and wishes to assure the community of Attleboro that we are investigating and handling the incident in accordance with our human resource policies. In the meantime, you can be assured that no child will be denied a meal, regardless of outstanding balances."
Uhh sarcasm? As much as I'd like to agree with you, not everyone is poor because they've made poor decisions (Why there are many who did).
But yeah, rules are rules. No money, no lunch. This is not a charity. What's next, me complaining a restaurant won't give me food because I don't have enough?
they didn't follow the rules though. the rules state the kids where to get a cheese sandwich if they didn't pay.
