NEW BERLIN – Alarmed over the threat of the Warwick, R.I. threat to stop serving hot lunches to students whose parents owed lunch money to the school, Chobani founder Hamdi Ulukaya donated $50,000 to the school to ensure all students receive a hot meal, according to The Providence Journal.

“Every child should have access to natural, nutritious & delicious food, so @Chobani is doing our small part to help pay this debt,” he tweeted yesterday afternoon from his personal account, @hamdiulukaya.

The Warwick Public School district came under fire earlier this week after announcing that students with school lunch debts would only be served cold sunbutter and jelly sandwiches. The decision, which was heavily criticized by parents and community members, has since been reversed.
