A 9-year-old boy told his Grandmother he had the “worst birthday ever” because his lunch was taken away at school. The reason was because he had an outstanding balance.
The boy attend’s school in Ohio and lives with his grandmother. The grandmother says that she enrolled the boy in the “free and reduced” lunch program for school. She said the school told her she could write a check for his lunch until the registration and paperwork were complete. On August 30th he came home with a note showing an outstanding balance of $9. The school said they would smooth things out and so she assumed the lunches would be fine. Well, on Sept 3rd which is his birthday, he came home and told his grandmother that his “hot” lunch was taken away and replaced with a piece of cheese on bread. Green Local School Officials are in the process of investigating.
