High school students in Hawkins County, Tennessee were served up some 6-year old pork last week for lunch, and while no one has gotten sick yet, the news is not sitting well with anyone.

A cook at a local primary school (who didn’t serve the meat) sent a photo of the pork to a city commissioner named Michael Herrell, who discovered that it had also been distributed to several other schools in the area.

Cafeteria workers at Cherokee High School said “that it smelled so bad they made gravy to put over the meat,” according to News Channel 11.

And at another high school the smell was apparently so bad that it reportedly stunk up the halls.

Despite the putrid meat being so old and smelly, some students “even came back for seconds,” according to WISH TV.

Which is mildly disturbing.

A rep from the USDA told Yahoo that there probably wasn’t any danger in eating it, but it “should be consumed within four to 12 months of freezing.”

The director of schools, Steve Starnes, has since ordered that an inventory be taken of all the food in the freezers, although you think that sort of thing would have already been in place.

A picture is worth a thousand words, and in this case, it’s also now worth over a million dollars.

The popular photo series “Humans of New York” highlighted a young boy from Brooklyn last week named Vidal Chastanet, whose inspirational quote about his principal evolved into an online fundraising campaign of epic proportions on Indiegogo.

Chastanet, and eighth grader from Mott Hall Bridges Academy in Brownsville was asked who most influenced him in his life.

His response: “My principal, Ms. Lopez,” he said in the original Facebook post (which now has over 1 million likes. “She tells us that each time somebody fails out of school, a new jail cell gets built. And one time she made every student stand up, one at a time, and she told each one of us that we matter.”

Brandon Stanton, the photographer behind “Humans of New York” later spoke with the principal, Nadia Lopez, and featured her on the site as well.

“This is a neighborhood that doesn’t necessarily expect much from our children, so at Mott Hall Bridges Academy we set our expectations very high,” she said. “We don’t call the children ‘students,’ we call them ‘scholars.’ Our color is purple. Our scholars wear purple and so do our staff. Because purple is the color of royalty.”

The area of Brooklyn where they are situated has some of the highest crime rates in the city, and Stanton wondered how he could use this opportunity to help the kids. Thus the Indiegogo campaign was launched.

Initially the funds raised on the site were to simply go towards an annual field trip where her students would get to visit Harvard University, but after the huge response (it’s at just over $1 million with 8 days left as of Thursday) the project has morphed into something even bigger.

All proceeds above $700,000 will be put into a scholarship fund for the students at Mott Hall Bridges Academy called “The Vidal Scholarship Fund,” Stanton announced this week, with Chastanet as the first recipient.

In addition to all of the monetary support, some people have even been sending Ms. Lopez flowers.

Well done Internet. Well done.
