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.
