To seize Children’s school lunches and throw it away, because of money; is “Moral Bankruptcy!”

Utah‘s biggest school systems apologized Thursday and told angry parents it was investigating why dozens of elementary school children had their lunches seized and thrown away when they didn’t have enough money in their accounts.

 

“This was a mistake,” said Jason Olsen, a spokesman for the Salt Lake School District. “There shouldn’t have been food taken away from these students once they went through that line.”

 

The district came under national criticism after as many as 40 kids were given fruit and milk and their real lunches were thrown away Tuesday at Uintah Elementary in Salt Lake City.

 

“She took my lunch away and said, ‘Go get a milk,'” fifth-grader Sophia Isom told NBC station KSL. “I came back and asked, ‘What’s going on?’ Then she handed me an orange. She said, ‘You don’t have any money in your account, so you can’t get lunch.'”
