A Hampden man named Dave, who refused to give his last name, said Thursday he went to Sam's Club in Bangor, where he bought 10 loaves of bread and two big jars each of peanut butter and strawberry jam he later delivered to the school in Old Town.
"Kids who are denied lunch can at least have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich," he said on Thursday.
...
RSU 34 Superintendent David A. Walker said on Tuesday that starting this week and continuing through the last day of school on June 11, students who owe money on their school lunch accounts won't be fed.
"We don't want a child to go without lunch, but at the same token, the taxpayers expect us to collect what's due to us," Walker said on Tuesday. However, snacks are available in the guidance office, he added.
He did not return phone messages seeking comment on Thursday.
...
Walker said the policy of not serving kids who have delinquent bills during the last week of school has been in place for the eight years he has been the superintendent of RSU 34. However, it was not an official policy approved by the school board.
"This board has not had a meal charging policy, which I'm guessing from the discussion [Tuesday] is something they'll need to have," Walker said previously. "If the board decides they don't want to do business this way, then that's what we'll do."
He said his policy has been effective because he ends up collecting the money owed to the school. Written notices are mailed periodically to parents and phone calls are made informing them of balances owed. After students are out of school, he said, he loses that contact with the student and parents and collecting the money gets much more difficult.
The policy is only enforced at the middle and high school levels, he said.
Walker previously said there are about 1,500 students in the school system.
"You could have 50-75 accounts that are delinquent that are anywhere between $5 and $250," said Walker. "If I have $2,500 worth of unpaid lunches, then I take $2,500 from [the] general fund to pay for it. That's $2,500 that is not used for textbooks or other things. Resources are fairly scarce."
Dave of Hampden said the food he bought cost $36.36. He was greeted nicely at the Old Town middle school on Thursday, he said. The donation was accepted, he said, but he was told that it was unnecessary.

Ireland owed $53 on her son's school lunches, and starting on Monday and continuing through the last day of school on June 11, students who owe money on their school lunch accounts won't be fed, according to RSU 34 Superintendent David Walker.
...
The policy isn't new, said Walker, adding that before Monday, he hadn't received a complaint in the eight years he has enforced it as superintendent.
"We don't want a child to go without lunch, but at the same token, the taxpayers expect us to collect what's due to us," said Walker.
Parents are mailed notices periodically of how much is owed for their child's school lunch, said Walker.
...
The no-pay, no-food policy is only implemented at the middle school and high school levels, not at the elementary school level, Walker said.
"Students are old enough to take responsibility for their lunches" by the middle school age, said Walker.
...
A lunch in middle school costs $2.50, while a lunch in high school costs $2.75, said Walker.
Walker said he owes it to taxpayers to try to collect that money. He said there are about 1,500 students in the school system.
"You could have 50-75 accounts that are delinquent that are anywhere between $5 and $250," said Walker.
...
It's a lot of administration time and postage for the collections part and it becomes a task," said Walker.
Walker said the policy is used for the last week of the year because after school is out, the school has lost the connection with students and parents.
"I have very little luck in collecting money when school is out," he said.
The policy is also effective.
"If you didn't make any attempt to collect, it would be bigger," Walker said.
...
Walker said students who don't get a lunch can still get snacks from the guidance office.
There is a process for free or reduced lunch, said Walker.
"It's much easier to work ahead of time than to get to this point in the year with a week left of school," he said.
...
Those board members contacted the superintendent about his policy, said Walker.
"This board has not had a meal charging policy, which I'm guessing from the discussion [Tuesday] is something they'll need to have," said Walker. "If the board decides they don't want to do business this way, then that's what we'll do."
Walker said on Tuesday that he would talk with administrators and the food service director to "find out what happened and where was the communication missed [with Ireland]."
Walker did not immediately return a phone message seeking comment on Wednesday.
