When the kids themselves are taking pictures of their lunch, posting them to social media and then calling home for Mom to bring more food to school because they are hungry, you’ve got a problem.
Here is what high school senior Darrell Bunch was served for lunch at Haskell High School in Haskell, Oklahoma recently.
I may not be a parent or a nutritionist, but even I know that growing teenage boys need more food than that.
And then there was the fried cheese and marinara sauce.
That’s not even good at restaurants.
And what does the Haskell School District have to say about this? Â Nothing.
The school refused to allow the news station to show that dayâ€™s lunch servings. They wouldnâ€™t even speak on camera.
Haskell superintendent Sharon Herrington defended the lunches off-camera, saying students are offered five items and theyâ€™re are required to take three. That means the chicken patty, glob of potatoes and milk would qualify as a complete lunch under the federal rules.
We’re sure of that, but seriously, how good for the kids is this. Â According to the same article in the EAGnews.org piece, the kids claim the salad bar does not even have fresh offerings.
And now, to get the word out about what is on their lunch trays, the students themselves are taking pictures of their “food” and doing the reporting on the story because the adults in the school district won’t allow journalists to do their jobs and expose the Michelle Obama lunch story for what it is: a sham of a scam.
