School makes a 6-year-old girl return her food while they know she didn’t have enough money



Kids have enough on their metaphorical plates without having to worry about lunchtime too. Reports of bullying are paling into insignificance after school policies are shaming kids whose parents have lower incomes. That was the case for 6-year-old Anya Howard.

Anya and a friend had been served their lunches and were trying to pay. However, they were told their accounts did not have enough credit in them. They were forced to give up their lunches and walk to the back of the line. At the end of lunchtime, they would be given a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.

“They were laughing at us,” Anya said of her classmates.
