DOE looks into school lunch system that parents can check online

We’ve told you before about children going hungry because they have no money in their school lunch accounts.

Now, we’ve learned the Department of Education is taking steps toward improving the lunch payment system.

The department has issued a request for proposals for a new, web-based system that would allow parents to not only check the balance of their children’s lunch accounts, but also make payments online.

At this point, the program is still in the planning phases and has not officially been given the green light.
