Student Ordered to Throw out Lunch
Lunch Lady Denies Food to First Grader Who Can't Afford It
As a student who enjoys math homework and can't get enough fruit and veggies, 7-year-old Xavier sounds like the dream pupil. But one lunch lady at Cascade View Elementary in Snoqualmie, WA, seemed to disagree, refusing to serve him his mid-day meal one day in October.

During the daily distribution of the bagged lunches, Xavier said the lunch lady skipped his desk, saying, "Guess what? You can't have a lunch." Even though he's enrolled in a free-lunch program for qualifying families, he went the rest of the day without a bite to eat.
His parents were, of course, enraged because of what the school did to their son. "I couldn't believe it happened. It happened to me as a child and I could still feel that hurt, and I can only imagine what he went through," said Eric, Xavier's father.

According to the school's spokesperson, Xavier's account had a negative balance, resulting in the unfortunate incident. Eric insists, however, that his son's balance shouldn't be an issue since the state pays for the account through food stamps. Even if Xavier did owe money on the account, he technically still should have received a sandwich with fruits, vegetables and a drink. But the boy wasn't offered any of that.
Despite the school's ongoing investigation into the matter, Eric is considering sending his children to another school.
