(Scroll down for video) A boy of California, was punished after a school official caught him sharing his lunch with a classmate.
The incident unfolded at the Weaverville Elementary School on Tuesday.
13-year-old Kyle Bradford, shared his chicken sandwich with a friend. The friend did not like the cheese sandwich he got as part of the school’s lunch menu.
Bradford, who is in eighth grade, was shocked by the detention slip as he saw no problem with sharing his food. Bradford said that he wasn’t hungry and the chicken sandwich would have ended up in the garbage.
The Trinity Alps Unified School District has strict regulations, prohibiting students from share their meals. The policies were established by the district because students may not know that whether their friends suffer from allergies.
Bradford said that he will certainly share his lunch again if a hungry friend wants a portion of his food.
