When 13-year-old student Kyle Bradford shared his chicken burrito with a friend who didn't like the school lunch he was served by the school cafeteria, he didn't think anything of it.

"It seemed like he couldn't get a normal lunch so I just wanted to give mine to him because I wasn't really that hungry and it was just going to go in the garbage if I didn't eat it," he said.

Good move, kid, nobody likes wasting food. Wait, so why did he get detention for his random act of kindness?

Apparently, the school frowns upon sharing food for "safety and liability" reasons. Kids can have allergies that they aren't aware of and that could create a potential liability for the school.

"We have a policy that prohibits students from exchanging meals. Of course if students are concerned about other students not having enough to eat we would definitely want to consider that, but because of safety and liability we cannot allow students to actually exchange meals," the district superintendent said.

As for Kyle's mom, she tells KRCRTV that she doesn't think the school should discipline her son for being a good person and despite the detention, Kyle says he's definitely share his lunch again if he had a friend in need.

What do you guys think? Did he deserve the detention or is the whole thing totally unfair?
