Company fires some in Attleboro school lunch incident

ATTLEBORO — A New York-based food service company has fired several employees who refused to provide lunch for about 25 Coelho Middle School students this week because their prepaid accounts were too low in funds, creating a national stir, a company official said Friday.

Whitsons School Nutrition said it investigated and found that four workers had violated the school district’s policies by not feeding the students. All of those employees were disciplined and some were fired, an official said.
