Student Gets Detention for Sharing Lunch

Kyle Bradford, 13, is a student at Weaverville Elementary School in California. A friend received a cheese sandwich for lunch, which he didn't like. So, Bradford gave him his chicken burrito.

Bradford said he wasn't hungry, so he didn't see an issue with giving it away instead of throwing it away. Bradford said, “It seemed like he couldn't get a normal lunch so I just wanted to give mine to him because I wasn't really that hungry and it was just going to go in the garbage if I didn't eat it."

Unfortunately, Weaverville Elementary, as part of the Trinity Alps Unified School District, follows a district-wide policy that prohibits students from sharing meals with others due to allergy and hygiene concerns.

Superintendent Tom Barnett said, “We have a policy that prohibits students from exchanging meals. Of course if students are concerned about other students not having enough to eat we would definitely want to consider that, but because of safety and liability we cannot allow students to actually exchange meals.”

Bradford was also given detention.

His mother, Sandy Bradford, said: “By all means the school can teach them math and the arithmetic and physical education, but when it comes to morals and manners and compassion, I believe it needs to start at home with the parent."

Bradford added that he would do it again if it meant helping a friend.
