Crowdfunding To Prevent “Lunch Shaming”

I guess we’ll be seeing more of this in the next four years: a teacher in Texas is crowdfunding to pay off school lunch debt to prevent kids from being “lunch shamed.”

KXAN reports that “At some Texas schools, students with lunch debt or empty accounts are denied a hot lunch and given a cheese sandwich instead.”

If you’re eating a cheese sandwich you must be poor and SAD.

It’s hard to concentrate if you’re hungry.

What mother voluntarily sends her kid to school without lunch money? It’s not a choice.
