Students Say Wisconsin School Threw Their Lunches in the Garbage Because They Didn’t Have Enough Money
Students at in the Stanley-Boyd school district in Wisconsin say that school staff members have taken to throwing their lunches in the garbage because they don’t have enough money on their school lunch accounts.
Local news station WQOW reports that the Stanley-Boyd school district recently has been trying to crack down on giving out lunches to students whose accounts have hit $0.
However, some students and parents say that school staff members have gone too far by taking away lunches that students were already in the middle of eating and then tossing them in the trash.
Parent Denise Hoffstatter, meanwhile, tells the station that one school administrator admitted to her that a school employee did trash a student’s lunch — although they insisted that it only happened once and “it was some nachos.”
