In a report filed by Class News, the students were reported saying they were not prisoners to be served such a meal.
"We are not prisoners to be served with this food. Even prisoners will reject this food," they said.
One of the students also said the contract that was given to their caterer should be cancelled and rather given to her mother since the food was no good'
Some of the students who collected the food threw it away after their first taste.
Meanwhile, the headmaster of the school, Stephen Adjei, said the food was delivered to all the 55 students but the teachers were neglected.
Meanwhile, some Junior High Schools (JHS) teachers have stated that they would be more pleased if the government replaced their hot meals with money.
Although they welcomed the government’s one hot meal initiative for pupils and staff announced by President Akufo-Addo in his 15th COVID-19 address to the nation, they claim cash would be better.
Mavis Adjei, a teacher in a public basic school said some teachers were on diet and would not benefit from the meals.
