A mistake in a lunch order at the Turlock Unified School District this week led elementary campuses to cut sandwiches in half, officials said. Some staff and parents voiced concern when they heard what was happening and believed school employees were cutting sandwiches with ordinary scissors. But Scott Soiseth, the district's director of child nutrition, said that wasn't the case. He pointed out that the district has a separate menu for kindergarten through second-grade children: "The little guys just don't eat as much." Monday's menu called for a deli wrap, and the district ordered two sizes. The supplier delivered only the larger sandwiches. "We made the decision to cut them in half," he said. "It made no sense to us to give the little guys a 4.6-ounce sandwich." He said staff used only kitchen utensils on the lunches, and that this is not an unprecedented move: "We do the same thing with cheeseburger sliders — they come in packages of two."
