Michigan Student Denied Lunch

By  | 

A mother is fighting back against a Michigan high school after her son was denied a school lunch.

Dominic Gant's mother, Amanda Keown, said that her son was embarrassed in front of his classmates at Dowagiac High School. His lunch was taken away from him when an outstanding balance on his school lunch account was discovered. Keown said that she felt bad for her son and decided to act.

"I was appalled that he was denied lunch and that his lunch was taken out of his hands over 5 bucks," Keown said.

Keown went on to pay off her son's balance, along with 19 other students' balances, saying that she didn't want another student go through the same embarrassment as her son.
