WHAS 11)--Students at a Rhode Island middle school were denied their lunches all because they owed money on their pre paid accounts.
Students between the ages of ten and fourteen were forced to go back to class hungry after some of them were denied lunch and others were even ordered to throw away the lunches they already ordered.
24 students in all were turned away from the lunch line and their parents were understandably upset.
The school's principal said he is shocked, and has since launched an investigation into the lunch provider.
The company's director has been put on paid administrative leave and the lunch provider has since apologized.
