According to the Warwick Public School District, “If money is owed on a paid, free, or reduced lunch account a sun butter and jelly sandwich will be given as the lunch choice until the balance owed is paid in full or a payment plan is set up through the food service office.”

This ruling had a direct effect on nearly 9000 children. While Rhode Island schools are required by law to offer students a meal, the quality of the meal has taken a hit because of the money owed. Luckily, one man jumped in to help.
