Lunch dis­carded

Kapi-Mana News - - OPINION -

We of­ten hear about chil­dren go­ing to school hun­gry.

How­ever, we shouldn’t al­ways as­sume it is the par­ent’s fault.

On sev­eral oc­ca­sions re­cently I have seen cut lunches dis­carded at the base of lamp posts in Te Puke St, Ti­tahi Bay. They al­ways con­sist of four sand­wiches and ei­ther a piece of fruit or a yo­ghurt.

On, Fri­day Au­gust 22, it was four sand­wiches and a ba­nana.

It sad­dens me to think somebody has made the ef­fort to do the right thing but it is not ap­pre­ci­ated.

Rather than dump­ing the per­fectly good food, per­haps the child con­cerned should of­fer it to somebody who would.

That would also solve the lit­ter prob­lem they are cre­at­ing.
