This is sad.  They should mail the parents the bill directly.  For years I didn't eat breakfast because I thought I had to pay and was often short on lunch money.  My mom wasn't about that packed lunch life either.  Cry   Some of the parents could look into other schools if possible or complain about the treatment, and start packing their kids lunches.

Parents need to start parenting. 

So the kids should be punished because of what their parents didnt pay? Confused

If the parents don't think that paying for their kids to eat is important, why should the school? All these parents had to do was pay their balance instead of routinely sending their kid to school without lunch money every day. Where I grew up, if I didn't have $$ to eat at school, I simply couldn't eat. There were no credit lunches. Schools should go back to that. 


So you agree with them throwing food away instead of just letting them have it?

school lunch is expensiv.My mom had twins and that was atleast $160 a month. Not every one has it and kids have to go to school or you are fined/jailed.

They have summer lunch programs for a reason. Some kids only ready at school.

Sounds like some people need to be on that free lunch.

As a parent w/  two kids in school, I can tell you that its easy for them to run up a balance that I'm unaware of.  I'm not there when they purchase their items.  The school doesn't  always send a note, and when they do it could be days before I see it.  Notes get buried in all the other crap of fundraiser flyers, open house notices and homework.  Once I know there is a balance I can easily pay it online.

That school had no real right in throwing away food AFTER a child receives it.  Thats just plain evil and wasteful.

how high could those balances be though? When i was in school they only allowed 2 charges (lunch was $1.80 then), after that you couldnt get lunch. they sent notices in the mail as well

Truth be told the teachers that witnessed it aren't sh*t either.

Reduced lunch is like, what, a few cents...a dollar.

No one couldn't have stepped in and said use my acct. Charge it to me. Here's 20 bucks. NothingSleepy

The kids accts were low. Put a couple dollars in the kids accounts and stfu?

Oh.


Teachers usually don't eat in the same cafeteria as the kids. 
This falls squarely on the administration.  How can you tell kids not to waste food, but then throw their lunches in the bin because their parents owe a few dollars? Shameful!!!Angry

Confused

There were teachers present in the article.

And this really isn't about teacher/politics. I have teachers in my family. I come in peace.

But what I am saying is, why didn't someone intervene.

And, considering this was a place of education the only people present were educators. Not laymen. Hence...why didn't a teacher, principal, janitor, anyone...step up and say wtf is happening. Or better yet intercede.

I don't care who didn't pay what

taking and throwing away food in front of hungry children is utterly disgusting

they could have simply let them eat and sent them home with a note to their parents

So tired of worthless parents.

Every parent who doesn't provide lunch or lunch money should be charged with misdemeanor neglect and forced to attend parental education (to include signing up for wic, snap, free lunch, and whatever else).

It's sad that people can choose not to feed their own kids and have no consequences. From te looks of those parents ain't nan one missing a meal. And if you can't find a peanut butter sandwich and a banana for your kid then they should be in someone else's custody who can at least provide the basics.
