A 12-year-old middle school student in Texas had just gotten his breakfast from the cafeteria when an employee took it from him, dumped it in the trash and sent him to class. Why? Because his meal account was short the 30 cents that it cost for him to buy a reduced-price meal that morning. The boy's mother, Jennifer Castilleja, says the school's policy needs to be changed because she doesn't think kids should have to start their day hungry, nor should they be embarrassed with a public meal-trashing in front of their friends.

"[Tell] the child, we are going to feed you, but go to the office and call your parent and let them know that you need money," Castilleja told ABC13. "Anything than sending them to class hungry." Castilleja says when her son called her, she brought him food and replenished his account. The school said that it was only following policy.
