"A middle schooler got on my bus this evening and said, "Mr. Johnny, I'm hungry." I said, "Why are you hungry, buddy? Didn't you eat lunch?" He said, "No sir, I didn't have any money on my account. I said, "They would let you charge it?" "No, sir. Huh! What! This child is already on reduced lunch, and we can't let him eat? Are you kidding me? I'm certain there was leftover food thrown away today. But kids were turned away because they didn't have .40 on their account."

He added to his post an offer to help any child who faces the same situation. And this post went viral over the internet.
