Saint Cloud School District has publicly apologized after a photo of a lunch offered to students on Friday went locally viral on social media.
The photo (above) shows a school lunch at Apollo High School featuring a hot dog bun covered in melted cheese with a side of carrots and some marinara sauce. The photo was taken by Maryn Holler, whose Facebook post has been shared nearly 1,000 times.
Holler, a 17-year-old student, wrote: "Alright so i paid for this to eat at lunch today. I thank God everyday that my family has the money where i get to go home and eat actual food. there are kids at this school who this is ALL THEY GET TO EAT, and we were given a hotdog bun with cheese. it’s honestly sad to know that we go to school and pay around 3 dollars for something that cost .50 cents to make."
