LYNN, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — Parents of students at Lynn Public Schools came together to start a petition for a full investigation into the food being served to their children during lunch hours. The petition now has over a thousand signatures.

Food provider Revolution Foods prepares the school's meals because the Lynn school system does not have kitchens of their own.

From chunky milk to moldy pasta, complaints of the quality of Lynn cafeteria food stacked up. "Our kids health is at risk," said parent and petition organizer Sophia Seang, "everyday that we're not solving this- there is going to be a sick kid sent to the nurse's office or to the hospital because they've eaten spoiled, rotten food."

Another parent, Melody Finnegan, saw the lunches first-hand and said, "It wasn't edible- I've gotten to the point where I can no longer trust our lunches at school."

Lynn Superintendent Dr. Patrick Tutwiler said that the school is undergoing an investigation into the matter.

WBZ NewsRadio reached out to Revolution Foods for a comment but have not received one at this time.
