I just read an article online, a school in NY area made a child throw away her food because she couldn't pay. WTF. Why throw it away and not let her eat it. I think that this is unacceptable in the United States of America. This makes me sad, and angry at the same time. I know it happens everywhere not just there....God Bless the little children.

Are we feeding those kids anyway in the school system don't the ones that can not pay get food stamps and other government assisted programs all ready. Where is the take your lunch and breakfast to school program that don't stress the tax payer dollar any longer.
They want CUTS cut out lunch and breakfast program force those that get food stamps and other government assisted programs to make lunches and breakfast for their kids.If they dont make their kids breakfast or lunch do as they do if they do not attend and throw their butts in jail.

I'm with Darlene whole heartedly on this one. It's a sad reality but many children come to school hungry, they go to bed hungry too. However, this incident was not part of a free-lunch program or else the school wouldn't be asking the kid to pay for it.

Throwing it away didn't help anything. The kid stayed hungry and the school wasted a meal that in the end, the tax payers had to pay for because someone has to pay for it even if it's in the trash. All this nonsense while budget cuts are forcing educators to close classrooms and libraries.

Spot on, Darlene. Spot on.

It's sad what this world is coming to! When a school is going to throw away a child's lunch because it's not paid for, Insane ...it's not the child's fault the parents did not Pay for the lunch... Poor child. Ive never heard of that happening here! They make you eat all our food I'm these schools... Elementary that is!

They MAKE the kids eat ALL the food on their cafeteria plates? GAWD. I remember school lunches. They were disgusting and they haven't got any yummier in these budget strapped times. There is no way anyone could have made me eat that crap. My school always had a vending machine full of cold crisp apples for a nickel. Chocolate milk was fifteen cents. I was given a quarter every day and saved a nickel. By the end of the week I could afford a candy bar.

That's kids for ya.
