No ‘Lunch Shaming’ at Rochester Schools
There are reports around the country that the new trend at some schools is something called "Lunch Shaming"; and it's becoming more prevalent.
This is when a student doesn't have enough lunch money and a school will take away a child's hot food and replace it with an alternative lunch which could include milk and a cheese sandwich, or sometimes no lunch at all.
Rochester Public School Superintendent Michael Munoz was on Rochester's Good Morning with Rich Peterson and Kim David on Thursday. We asked him about this trend and what happens in Rochester when a student is out of funds.
According to the School Nutrition Association, 76% of school districts across America have students with unpaid meal debt at the end of the 2014-15 school year.
