When we send our children to school, it is with the thought that they will be cared for in the same way that they would be cared for at home. That would include being fed and looked after throughout the day. Unfortunately, there are times when the school system is going to fall short of the mark and despite their best efforts, they are never going to be able to provide the same TLC that our children get at home. In addition, there are times when the family may be going through various struggles, and that includes financial struggles.
One of the difficulties that many families have been facing recently is not having enough money for lunch money at school. Most parents are not overly concerned about this because they feel as if the children will never go hungry, even if they are unable to afford lunch for the day. As we know, it doesn’t always happen that way and a mother by the name of Amy Whitaker is letting people know what happened to her son. He had forgotten his lunch money and they provided him with a free sandwich but when you see the picture, you realize that the sandwich was moldy!
Amy did what most mothers would do in this type of situation, she blew the whistle and vented a little steam by posting the picture on Facebook. She explained what happened, saying that her son was given a moldy peanut butter sandwich when he didn’t have money for the day.
Whitaker feels that there is no way that the sandwich could have been given to her son by accident. The mold was obvious enough that anyone would have seen it. Since then, the school has released a statement saying that they have apologized and are doing what they can to ensure that it doesn’t happen again. That being said, it’s something that shouldn’t have happened in the first place.
