Children Lunches Taken Away and Dumped

On Tuesday of last week about 40 students of Uintah Elementary School had their lunches taken away from them because their was not enough money in their accounts to cover the cost of the lunches. This was done during checkout in front of their friends and other students. It was both embarrassing and humiliating for the students involved. The incident left many parents upset and drew nation wide attention.

A cafeteria manager was sent on leave and the Salt Lake City School District is investing the matter.

I am commenting on this incident because the thing that really puzzles me is the fact that the lunches were thrown away and the children given a snack of fruits and milk as an alternative. The question one might ask is why deny someone food and then take that same food and throw it in the garbage? The school has a policy in place whereby lunches cannot be served twice, so before the lunches were taken from those children they knew it would be thrown away. What is the logic behind this?

I do hope that good sense prevail and that something of this nature never happens again.

    It doesn’t make any sense to throw the food away.
