EAG: JESUP, Ga. – Eat like Michelle Obama or go hungry — that’s the attitude of a Georgia preschool.
A parent of a child at Wayne County Head Start says her 4-year-old comes home hungry after the food being served is often stomach-turning and inedible.
“He comes home and he’s constantly hungry,” the boy’s mother, Mattie Genaux, tells WTOC. “Granted, boys are typically always hungry, but he is starving. And his weight, he’s not gaining anything. He is actually not gaining anything at all, and I’m worried.”
Genaux produced photos of moldy french fries, old coleslaw, and other food she claims has been served to children.
Another parent claims her child was hospitalized after “constant vomiting from eating the food” at the school.
A school employee confirms expired food has been served at the school and says is has been going on “for weeks.”
