Letter: The truth on school lunches in Willmar
Thursday morning I read an article in the West Central Tribune about lunches being taken away from kids in school.
I stepped out of line and told the lunch lady, “I am going to pay for his lunch.” I typed my code in and brought him his lunch tray. I gave him his meal and said, “Here, you can have it back.”
It was unfair for her to do that to him. It embarrassed him in front of our class. I have seen this happen many times, but I had to stand up this time because I felt embarrassed for him.
Our school says they don’t take meals away from kids when they can’t pay, when in fact they do. It is unfair that he had his meal taken away from him. I just wanted you to know the truth from a student who witnessed this happen.
