Why Did a Tennessee Grade School Ban Pork? | FOX News & Commentary: Todd Starnes:
"Third grade teachers at Sunset Elementary School in Brentwood, Tenn. sent home an “Approved Snack List” for the school year and it specifically banned anything that comes from a pig.
“No meats containing pork,” read the memorandum.
“Starting Monday, August 12, 2013 your child must provide their own snack from the above approved snack list.”
Kids could nosh on raw vegetables without dips or sauces, fresh fruit, crackers, pretzels, and popcorn – but no ribs or pork rinds.
“Only choose a food from the following list to bring into school for snack,” the memorandum stated in bold-face type.
“No other food items are permitted.”"
