The meals for the school are prepared and supplied by Iskcon under Akshaya Patra scheme.
The worm was found in a plate of rice.
On Friday, meals were supplied to government girls' high school by Iskcon as usual. A girl spotted a worm in her plate of rice and brought it to the notice of a teacher.
The teacher who responded to the situation said that worm was found in mid-day meal at the school even on an earlier occasion. "We have informed Iskcon about this. The worm might have been in the rice," said the teacher.
Iskcon officials who arrived at the school assured that measures will be taken to ensure better hygiene and cleanliness. As the worm was big, they surmised that it was among the vegetables.
