Who Is the Mystery Food Monitor?
No agency has said it employed the person checking preschoolers' lunch bags

RALEIGH Three days after a Carolina Journal report on the plight of a 4-year-old preschooler and her lunch made national headlines, the identity of the person who determined that the youngster's homemade lunch was not nutritious remains unknown.
Of the several government agencies who have been named in the controversy the U.S. Department of Agriculture, the Division of Child Development and Early Education at the N.C. Department of Health and Human Services, Hoke County schools, and the FPG Child Development Institute at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill none will admit that it was responsible for employing or contracting with the person who was inspecting preschoolers lunches at West Hoke Elementary School in late January.
In the initial story published Feb. 14, CJ Associate Editor Sara Burrows reported that a preschooler at West Hoke was notified by someone at the school that the lunch she brought from home a turkey sandwich with cheese on white whole wheat bread, a banana, a bag of chips, and a container of apple juice did not meet USDA guidelines for nutritious meals.

This must have been written by the school's English teacher.
WHO authorized/initiated this INVASION OF PRIVACY/ Constitutional VIOLATION of 4th ammendment RIGHTS?
Who or Whom???
They need to forfeit their citizenship rights for this ASSAULT on CHILDREN!
This person’s name should be made public.
Also their home address.
Do you have a link for that?
it was an illegal search...... no warrant
Which means that they are in it up to their eyeballs, if not deeper.
More information on this please.
Probably a lot. I suspect that the school receives money from the state for each school lunch provided. Every bag lunch, is money lost.
This would be like the FTE (Full Time Equavalent) which determines how much money the school gets from the state, except for food not seats in chairs.
early days, but it's already HER FAULT!
A North Carolina Non-Troversy?
The TV station’s update further quotes the school district’s superintendent as saying that the child was simply instructed (it is unclear by whom, and it is unclear whether the child was first asked whether she wanted milk) to go through the lunch line to get some milk, and that the superintendent thinks “that the child became confused about what she had to do. I think the child, instead of going over and picking up the milk, I think the child, for whatever reason, thought she had to go through the line and get a school meal which, that’s not our policy.”
Call Homeland Security about a possible terrorist attack, Get them doing something useful for a change.
Where are the TV and Radio Stations and Newspapers In NC?
Do they not HAVE investigation reporters? Why are these TV and Radio stations covering up the idenity of this food Nazi?
These stations are licensed to serve their communities. If they are incapable of serving their communities, their broadcast license should be given to other groups who WILL serve their community.
I can parse that statement on so many levels. acts? What facts? Confirm? IOW, We said we did not do it and now confirm we did not do it. What did they confirm? A negative.
That sentence tells us all we need to know. If it was a DHHS employee or contractor, we will never know.
Ummmm, DHHS monitors this site. When you hear a knock on your door, please hand over your bread crumbs and frying pan quietly and quickly, without incident, and all will be well.
Thank you for your cooperation :)
Trial balloon resoundingly shot down.
If the school can’t or won’t provide the name of the person who interacted with this child the school is in violation of several laws. We don’t allow secret interactions with minor children in public schools. FOI and other laws make it mandatory that this food Nazi be exposed.
So some random person is sneaking on the campus, inspecting ALL lunch boxes, unbeknownst to the administrators.
What a pack of lies.
Oh, great, and with all of the fuss-and-feathers about peanut allegeries and the like, they're going to tell a little girl, who may or may not be lactose-intolerant, that she HAS to go get some milk.
Sounds like another lawsuit just waiting to happen ...
Disgusting! Next the little girl will be crying over her homemade lunch in the hall, until some caring staffer discovered she was distressed because she wanted nuggets.
I hope at least 20 people get fired over this.
What if the little girl is allergic to milk? She should never be told to drink milk!
