School Lunch in Kansas

WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) A Kansas mother is raising concern about schools being able to provide an adequate lunch to students.

Rachel Green posted a photo of her daughter's school lunch at Hutchinson High School to Facebook on Wednesday.

She said her daughter had the last lunch rotation of the day and all that was left was a "nasty, discolored hot dog, a round bun (because they had run out of hot dogs buns) and beans."

Green said she couldn't believe she had been charged $2.70 for the meal that didn't include fries or veggies.

Eyewitness News reached out to the Hutchinson School District who said the principal had made contact with Green about the lunch and refunded her daughter's account.

How Deutsche Bank Enabled A Dirty Offshore Bank To Move Dark Money

Deutsche Bank facilitated hundreds of millions of dollars of transactions for a corrupt Cyprus bank that served as a hub for illicit money from “the darkest corners of the criminal underworld”, a trove of secret documents obtained by BuzzFeed News reveals.

Deutsche – and its New York subsidiary under scrutiny for its loans to Donald Trump – provided a crucial bridge between FBME Bank and the global financial system, acting as its longstanding correspondent bank in the US and helping some of its most nefarious clients move illicit money into the West.

FBME was banned from using the dollar this year after losing a protracted legal battle with the US government – three years after the Financial Crimes Enforcement Network, known as FinCEN, first moved to stop the bank sending “dirty funds through the U.S. financial system”.

FinCEN kept much of its evidence against FBME secret – but the files obtained by BuzzFeed News have exposed the Cyprus bank as a major conduit for funds linked to terrorism, organised crime, and chemical weapons, and revealed how blue-chip Western institutions enabled its activities. In recent days we disclosed how FBME’s ultra-powerful international law firms – including an attorney playing a key role in the Trump-Russia investigation – crusaded for the bank while accountants at two of the world’s biggest accounting firms signed off its activities, and we exposed a network of Kremlin-linked slush funds inside FBME funnelling money to shadowy people fronting for Syria's chemical weapons programme, organised crime, and ISIS.
