Kids are forgetful and parents are, too -- and sometimes in the morning rush to school, the lunch money gets left on the kitchen counter or the lunch bill doesn't get paid on time. Well that was just too bad for students at an Attleboro, Massachusetts, middle school who went hungry this week if they had a negative balance on their pre-paid lunch cards. According to CNN about 25 students left the lunchroom with empty stomachs. Whitson's Culinary Group, the company that runs the school's cafeteria, apologized in a statement saying that, "Employees had taken it upon themselves to institute this change; it was not condoned or approved... We had absolutely no idea." While kids with negative balances usually receive "a cheese sandwich, a fruit and vegetable, and milk," that was not the case for this cafeteria. The culinary company supplies 80 schools in the New England area but no other incidents have been reported. Regardless the school's principal, teachers, parents and students were understandably upset.
