Florida man pays off school lunch debt for entire town: ‘Children shouldn’t learn hungry’

A Florida man decided to surprise his community by paying off the lunch debt of every child in their town, Jupiter, but the good news doesn’t stop there. He sparked a movement.

When Andrew Levy found out more than 400 students in his area were unable to receive a full meal because they couldn’t afford to pay for school lunches, he stepped up to the plate.

“I thought, ‘That’s crazy.’ Food is something you shouldn’t have to think about,” Levy told WPEC. “Children shouldn’t learn hungry.”

Levy paid $944.34 to cover nine local schools’ lunch debt, something he said was a modest price to pay to make a difference for each child.

“I want to thank you for generosity, these kids will never forget your kindness,” one person wrote, according to Faithwire. “No kid should ever have to go hungry while at school so let’s make this happen in every city and in every state!!!” another added.

The School District of Palm Beach County, a much larger area, set up a form for people interested in helping out erase the $50,000 accumulated for over 180,000 enrolled students.

California bills seeks to ban ‘lunch shaming,’ will guarantee state-funded meals for students

A new California bill hopes that “lunch shaming” will be a thing of the past as it guarantees that students in schools will receive state-funded lunches, even if their parents have failed to pay meal fees.

Gov. Gavin Newsom signed into law the new piece of legislation, which bans the process in which institutions deny students a meal of their choice due to unpaid fees.

The law amends the 2017 Child Hunger Prevention and Fair Treatment Act by requiring schools to invalidate policies that ask officials to give alternative meals to students who have unpaid fees, according to Newsom.

CANDY CORN ORIGINALLY HAD A MUCH SILLIER, MUCH DIFFERENT NAME 

He said students who are given these cheaper “alternative” lunches cause them to stick out from their peers.

Middle school students getting lunch items in the cafeteria line.

Newsom said he was inspired by the story of Ryan Kyote, a 9-year-old boy from West Park Elementary who drew attention to how kids at his school were singled out because they didn’t have enough money in their food accounts.

Kyote used his allowance, which totaled $74.80, to pay off his third-grade class’s lunch debt, according to ABC 7.

“‘Creating a California for All’ means ensuring schools are inclusive, accepting, and welcoming of all kids. These bills help move us closer to that goal,” Newsom said in a statement.

Newsom met with Kyoto in August, a meeting the governor declared was an “honor.”

MILLENNIALS SAY ITALIAN FOOD IS THEIR FAVORITE BECAUSE IT’S ‘INSTAGRAMMABLE,’ SURVEY CLAIMS

“This amazing young man saved his allowance and used it to pay his classmates’ lunch debt. For Ryan, it was just wrong that some kids couldn’t afford to eat lunch. He’s right about that,” Newsom said at the time.

Steps to limit the so-called “lunch shaming” have taken root in recent years even before SB 265 was introduced by Newsom.

Sen. Bernie Sanders tweeted back in June after hearing of Kyote’s story that he would provide  “year-round universal school meals” if elected president of the United States.

CALIFORNIA BAN ON FUR PRODUCTS IS FIRST IN US

In June, U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D) introduced The No Shame at School Act, which bans identifying students who can’t pay for their school lunch.

“Across this country, students whose families are struggling to afford school meals are being singled out and humiliated at lunchtime,” Omar said at the time, according to the Hill. “These students are subjected to various shaming practices at schools. Some students have been literally branded with stamps.”

Napa Valley Unified School District told ABC 7 that students with a negative lunch account still get a hot meal, with prices ranging from $.30 to $3.25.

‘Trump watch party’ reinstated at Michigan restaurant after RNC chair Ronna McDaniel’s tweet rallies the troops: report

Management at a Buffalo Wild Wings restaurant in Michigan had a sudden change of heart this week after initially canceling a plan by local Republicans to hold a “Trump watch party” at the location because of unspecified “complaints.”

Perhaps helping speed the reversal: Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel of the Republican National Committee – a former chairwoman of the Michigan Republican Party whose grandfather was a Michigan governor – learned the event had been called off and alerted her 376,000 Twitter followers.

TRUMP BELITTLES BIDENS WITH GRAPHIC LANGUAGE AT MINNEAPOLIS RALLY, AS CHAOS UNFOLDS OUTSIDE ARENA

“Just learned @BWWings cancelled a Michigan viewing party for @realDonaldTrump’s rally,” McDaniel wrote in a since-delated post, according to the Washington Examiner. ” … tell them the left’s cancel culture has gone too far.”

Soon the restaurant’s location in Howell, Mich., and the corporate office in Minneapolis were receiving calls and messages from Republicans, the Examiner wrote — and officials decided to allow the Trump watch party to proceed.

A representative for the chain later told the Examiner that the cancellation had been “based on a misunderstanding.”

“The group has in fact previously hosted events at the restaurant without incident,” the statement said. “The franchise owner apologizes for the misunderstanding.”

McDaniel later tweeted a “thank you” message to the chain.

“Thank you @BBWings for letting the watch party proceed as planned,” McDaniel wrote, “and thank you to everyone who expressed their support for @realDonaldTrump!

Howell is about 55 miles northwest of Detroit.

Red-meat studies reversing previous data ‘changed my views,’ Dr. Marc Siegel says: ‘Go eat a steak’

Westlake Legal Group Carlson-Siegel Red-meat studies reversing previous data 'changed my views,' Dr. Marc Siegel says: 'Go eat a steak' fox-news/shows/tucker-carlson-tonight fox-news/media/fox-news-flash fox-news/media fox-news/health/heart-health fox-news/health fox-news/food-drink fox news fnc/media fnc Charles Creitz c7bafbf1-67e6-5282-a2ea-71ee767107c7 article

A new dossier of studies into red meat consumption concluded there are reportedly far fewer links to health problems than previously believed, which is stunning, according to Dr. Marc Siegel.

The studies, released in the Annals of Internal Medicine, changed Siegel’s view on the supposed dangers of eating too much red meat, he told Tucker Carlson on Wednesday’s “Tucker Carlson Tonight.”

“It changed my views and it made me wonder about all the Democratic attacks lately on our gaseous cattle friends that we actually rely on for red meat,” he said, noting the studies included millions of participants. “I have to re-look at red meat.”

NEW JERSEY REPORTS FIRST VAPING-LINKED DEATH, US TOLL RISES TO 14

Siegel said beef and other meats are high in protein, B-vitamins and zinc and that the danger likely lies in what is consumed with the meat — whether it be french fries or other starchy, heavy foods.

“It’s more of a lifestyle thing,” he said. “Maybe we should be eating our steak with a salad or Brussels sprouts.”

Host Tucker Carlson noted humans began as hunter-gatherers and it therefore seemed unlikely that humans would evolve to suffer adverse effects from eating red meat.

In response, Siegel suggested that processed meats and those with added nitrates might be the cause of some health problems.

He stressed that all such foods should still be consumed in moderation.

“Shame on you out there that are throwing out all our great hamburgers,” he remarked. “Go eat a steak.”

YouTuber agrees to pay family of girl who died copying her cooking video

A Chinese YouTuber has agreed to pay the families of two girls who tried to copy one of her viral cooking techniques after one of them died on September 5.

Zhou Xiao Hui, also known as Ms Yeah, has 7.5 million subscribers on YouTube and routinely makes videos of herself cooking using unusual objects. In the video in question, she attempted to cook popcorn in a soda can using just an alcohol lamp.

When two girls, Zhe Zhe, 14, and Xiaoyu, 12, tried the same technique — heating up the alcohol in the soda can — it ignited, resulting in devastating injuries, according to the BBC.

Ms Yeah said the accident occurred because the flame was lit when they attempted to pour alcohol in the cans, which helped to ignite a nearby 2-pound bucket of alcohol.

Zhe Zhe later died from the injuries she sustained in the explosion, and Xiaoyu needs cosmetic surgery, according to her family. The Beijing News reported that Zhe Zhe sustained burns on 96 percent of her body and Xiaoyu had burns on 13 percent of her body.

Even though Ms Yeah paid the families an undisclosed amount, she denied the two girls were replicating her video exactly and said they used a different method.

“I used only one tin can and an alcohol lamp, which is safer,” she said in a post on Weibo. “In [their video] we could clearly see that they used two cans and not a lamp.”

She added that her videos aren’t meant to be instructional, according to the BBC.

Hui will pay the hospital bills for Xiaoyu, and it’s not clear how much additional compensation she will contribute. Ms Yeah’s cousin, who serves as her representative, says the YouTuber will help out the families, “regardless of who was right and who was wrong,” according to the outlet.

He added that he hoped there would “not be any hate” between the families of the two girls and his cousin.

The families reached out to Beijing News. Xiaoyu’s father said his daughter “no longer dared to step out of the house,” and Zhe Zhe’s father said no amount of money will bring his daughter back.

Ms Yeah released a video on Sept. 10 titled “The darkest day of my life.” The YouTuber said she “let her fans down” and the tragedy caused her “immense pain.”

He couldn’t believe his eyes.

Robert Wilson Barnes bought a sandwich at a Jimmy John’s restaurant recently for himself and his wife and just before they were about to dig in, he noticed black writing on the wrapper: ‘B**CH.”

Intent on defending his wife’s honor, Barnes said on Facebook that he returned to the store (while fuming) and asked to speak to the manager.

“He looked confused, so I pointed at the writing on the sandwich and demanded that he tells me why someone felt the need to write it on my wife’s sandwich,” he posted.

He said the manager told him that his wife ordered a BLT with cheese.

A California-based food company has agreed to pay $2 million to settle a federal lawsuit after being accused of hiring only Hispanic employees – and rejecting job seekers who were white, black, Asian or members of other non-Hispanic groups.

Marquez Brothers of San Jose, which makes El Mexicano-brand cheeses, yogurts, meats and other foods, agreed to the deal after being sued by two African-American job applicants who were refused paperwork after seeking jobs at the company’s location in Hanford, Calif., the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission said Wednesday.

BALTIMORE RESTAURANT’S DRESS CODE CITED AS DISCRIMINATION: ‘THIS IS RACIST AS HELL’

One experienced job seeker was rejected “despite having been better qualified than those ultimately hired,” the EEOC said in a statement.

According to the Fresno Bee, the settlement applies to Marquez Brothers plants in nine states – Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Illinois, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas and Utah.

“This resolution should send a strong message to employers that the EEOC is dedicated to its mission,” Melissa Barrios, director of the EEOC’s office in Fresno, told The Business Journal.

Aside from the $2 million payment, the company has agreed to maintain a tracking system for all discrimination complaints filed against it, The Business Journal reported.

Anyone believing the company wrongfully discriminated against them should contact the EEOC by calling a toll-free number, 855-725-4456, the agency said.

Best friends bring beer, chicken wings to photo shoot celebrating friendship

Nothing says “lifelong friendship” like shotgunning beers, eating chicken wings and laughing ‘til you cry.

Two South Carolina women recently celebrated their 23 years of friendship with a photo shoot full of special mementos, in a post that has since gone viral on Facebook.

“I thought it would be perfect for us because anytime we get together, we just laugh and act goofy and just straight up always have a good time with each other,” Samantha Clark told Inside Edition of the one-of-a-kind portrait session she had with her best pal Christina Arthur.

DUNKIN’ THIEF FAILS TO OPEN REGISTER, FLEES WITH ‘5 TO 6 DOUGHNUTS’ INSTEAD

In a series of sweet pictures captured by Breana Welch of Easy Breezy Photography, the Aiken women shared a cheers with Michelob Ultra, munched on chicken wings, sprayed each other with silly string and, of course, posed with oversized, metallic “BFF” balloons in a woodsy setting.

Clark said that she and Arthur have been as thick as thieves since they were 7, when their families moved next door to each other.

“We played softball together, learned to drive together,” she detailed. “We were side-by-side for both of our marriages and had each other’s back when we both divorced.”

“From riding our bikes through the neighborhood, to staying up all night during our many sleepovers in our homemade tents, and all the way down to us learning to drive and both having babies, we’ve been with each other through it all!” the women continued in a Facebook post published by blog Love What Matters.

“We’ve seen each other at our highest and we’ve seen each other at our lowest. Through thick and thin, we have been able to count on each other. Even if we went weeks without talking or seeing each other, we always picked up right where we left off,” Clark and Arthur agreed.

“It is truly a beautiful thing and a blessing to be able to call each other friends. Besties. Ride or die. Partners in crime. Soul sisters!” they concluded in the post, which has since received over 13,000 likes, 3,000 shares and more than 21,000 comments since being shared by Love What Matters.

In a larger sense, photographer Welch said that she loved taking pictures of the pair to honor their decades-long friendship and close relationship.

“We never take the time to have photos done with our best friends,” Welch told Inside Edition. “You see family sessions and couples sessions but you never see best friends’ sessions.”

In a prime example of their hilarious bond, she explained that Clark and Arthur’s attempt at chugging cans of beer proved to be more of a mess than a success.

“It went completely wrong and [Clark] drank from the top of the can,” Welch laughed. “You can tell the two were literally made for each other. You can tell in their chemistry they’re going to be best friends forever.”

A Minnesota student’s Facebook post has gone viral after she shared an alarming image of a meal one school attempted to pass off as a suitable lunch – prompting officials to issue what many called a “condescending” apology.

Maryn Holler, a student at Apollo High School in St. Cloud, was left feeling both thankful and “sad” last week after she received what her school deemed an appropriate meal for lunch.

Sitting on a relatively empty tray were a handful of baby carrots, a packet of marinara sauce and – worst of all – an opened hot dog bun with melted cheese.

“I thank God everyday that my family has the money where I get to go home and eat actual food,” Maryn wrote in her Sept. 13 post.

“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.”

The post, which received over a thousand reactions and was shared over 900 times, sparked outrage among many people who called the platter a “sad excuse for a meal.”

“If your school ‘nutritionist’ didn’t notice this and who knows what else on the menu, I’m not sure I’d have much faith in their judgment going forward,” one user wrote. “The students at your school deserve so much better.”

Another comment read: “White bread, processed cheese, carrot sticks, and sugary juice…  the district nutritionist should be fired.”

“This is shameful,” one person added.

Prompted by the backlash, the St. Cloud Area School District issued a statement to their Facebook later that day.

“Oops! We goofed. Tried a new menu item today at lunch and we hear it was not a winner! Going forward, we will gather input from our students on new menu options. Thanks for the feedback!”

Many parents were further outraged by the apology, feeling that it lacked seriousness.

“The ‘Oops we goofed’ response is condescending and ridiculous,” one person commented. “No sensible person could have looked at that and thought that a ‘new’ menu item. At least be honest at what it was.”

Another parent added that she opts to have her children eat at school to “budget” but she expected more.

“’Oops we goofed’? You knew what you were doing and the lack of care going into the children’s meals. When I was in school I completely relied on my at school meal to get by, I’m so grateful that was before they started doing things like this. Those poor kids…,” another comment read.

Holler posted an update saying she met with her school principal about the lunch and was told she would have to meet with the district nutritionist.

“This is the start of something that could forever change my district.”
