Montgomery Students Face Meal Changes

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – Nearly 15-hundred Montgomery Public School students may no longer get free or reduced-priced meals starting Monday. Their parents haven't filled out the proper paperwork. There are new applications, and school system officials say the federal government will not allow outdated information as of next week. Students who still have old information on file Monday will have to pay the full price for their meals. If they can't, the school will provide them with a peanut butter sandwich until the issue is sorted out.
