WPXI – EIGHTY FOUR, Pa (WPXI) - A cafeteria worker in Pennsylvania's Canon-McMillan School District says she quit her job because of a new lunch policy that affects students whose accounts are delinquent.

Stacy Koltiska resigned from her job at Wylandville Elementary School's Cafeteria, citing the policy as her reason in a Facebook post.

"They get one slice of cheese between two cold pieces of bread, not even toasted," she says. "What am I supposed to do? Take their hot tray, remove the food, put down the cheese sandwich and throw it away? And the food director said, 'Well, don't let them see you throw it away.'"

Under the guidelines of the policy, "After overdrawing the cafeteria account by $25.00, students in grade K-6 will be able to charge an alternate lunch which will consist of a sandwich, a fruit/vegetable serving and milk. Students in grades 7-12 will not be allowed to charge any additional lunches."
