Commissioner sounds off on food fiasco

Months after an investigation revealed a food fiasco at Memphis City Schools, some commissioners still have complaints about the quality of your kids' lunch.

At Monday night's commission meeting, several people complained about students' food to board members.

The complaints raised at least a few eyebrows among school board members who said the interim superintendent Daniel Ward is responsible for the district's nutrition center.

The food issue has been brought up a couple of times.

"I can't talk to you about it because I don't know what these people are refering to. I have to get with somebody to find out. I have people, I have people checking with them to find out what specifically they are talking about," says Ward.

Kenneth Whalum Jr. adds, "I am beginning to believe that we should call Governor Bredesen personally and say Governor if you have a plan please come in please come in and help right this ship."

Whalum says school leaders wouldn't have to call the governor if people would listen to parents and students they represent.
