In Goberville near Fécamp (Seine-Maritime) it is a mixture of anger and amazement.
Three female municipal officers will be summoned to court at the end of October, for having stolen food dedicated to school children for at least a year.
According to Paris Normandie, they were arrested in September and are currently suspended.
The three women will also appear before the disciplinary council.
In recent months, many parents had come to complain to the mayor of the town to express their dissatisfaction.
According to them, their children were not getting enough food in the canteen.
The toddlers were rushing over to their snack and dinner.
On France Bleu, Laetitia recounts after having compared the menus for a whole month and what the children said they had eaten: “My daughter has always had half of her meal.
Either the starter or the dessert.
Half the meat.
If there were green vegetables with potatoes, the potatoes weren't there, ”she explains.
"I find it pitiful"
Mayor Frédéric Carlière is also stunned.
"I would never have believed that after 30 years of service, we could have fun stealing meals dedicated to children," he says.
Especially since according to him and several parents, the financial difficulties put forward by municipal officials are not very credible.
“When we need it at a given moment, it is not every day and in industrial quantities.
There may have been a pea business.
I find that pitiful, ”protests a mother.
And for the mayor, these agents are people who “work”.
Since then, the mayor and his deputies have served in the canteen for a time before the recruitment of three new employees.
