LUBBOCK, Texas – There’s a controversy brewing around Lubbock regarding an unappetizing school breakfast photo depicting what appears to be a tortilla shell with three tater tots and a few bacon bits.
KCBD reports the meal photo was shared by local parents on Facebook as an example of the puny offerings served up in schools under Michelle Obama’s “healthy” school food regulations, and the news site attempted to track down where the image originated.
Officials in several area school districts, however, are denying responsibility for the failure as area parents continue to flood KCBD’s Facebook page with other examples.
Lubbock resident Maria Mendoza appears to have first posted the image to Facebook on Sept. 8 with a caption that read:
“My daughter sent me a picture what her school is serving them this morning(.) This isn’t enough food for high school kids. And during lunch they get 35 mins and there is (sic) so many kids that come don’t get through the line and than (sic) they’re late for class. Not enough seating either some have to sit on the floor to eat their lunch”
The news station contacted the Lubbock Independent School District about the post, but officials contend the viral photo didn’t come from LISD cafeterias.
“They say they could immediately tell because they do not have this style of table in any of their cafeterias,” KCBD reports.
Mendoza later noted in the comments section that the image came from Frenship High School, in the nearby Frenship Independent School District, but officials there also denied any knowledge of the meal.
