‘[Resident of Renton Dave] Brabo spoke with the school’s Director of Nutritional Services, Tom Ogg, who informed him that “he was well aware of the issues (and the slippery slope) with the changes to menu options due to Muslim religious beliefs, but he said lots of Muslims had complained [Surely not – Ed.] and threatened the school by reporting them to the U.S. Department of Education.”
Mr. Brabo was told that if the school system doesn’t “accommodate the Muslim dietary needs that their federal and state funding would be cut or pulled.” He was told that the school system may be doing this in order to better accommodate incoming refugees. [Emphasis mine.]
Mr. Brabo responded by saying, “I want KOSHER food added and labeled, Christian “food” offered during Lent, and even Hindi food offered.” According to Mr. Brabo, Tom Ogg, Director of Nutritional Services laughed and said, “No”. He even cited a case of a school district in New York that had parents protest the labeling of “non-pork” products and offering acceptable Islamic food. The school district had to back down.’
I can’t find any statistics on religion for the Kent School District, but given the racial breakdown I find it hard to imagine they have a whole lot of Muslims. Never mind, all things must be changed to accommodate them.
