As many as 40 students at Uintah
Elementary in Salt Lake City had their lunches—which they’d already
received from the cafeteria—seized and trashed by school
authorities because their parents were behind on payments. 

According to Jason Olsen, a Salt Lake City District spokesman, the child-nutrition department realized some students’ families had outstanding balances on Monday, but the department’s manager wasn’t able to notify the school until after lunch had been served on Tuesday. So the department did what any humane, understanding person would do: they snatched the meals from the children and threw them in the trash.
