According to reports, a Pennsylvania school allegedly sent out letters to hundreds of parents of students saying they need to pay the school lunch debt for their child, or else their child will go into foster care.

The letter reportedly said, “our child has been sent to school every day without money and without a breakfast and/or lunch. If you are taken to Dependency court, the result may be your child being removed from your home and placed in foster care.”

The Wyoming Valley West School District claims they are owed more than $22,000 in unpaid lunch fees by over 1,000 students.
