CHARLOTTE, N.C. - A parent contacted Channel 9 about recent changes to a lunch program at her daughter’s school.
Metro School in uptown Charlotte serves students with special needs and disabilities.
Parent Tamekia Moorehead got an email about those changes at her daughter’s school. It said the school will no longer offer free lunch to all students.
“It's not right,” Moorehead said. “It's not right. And it's $2.75. I know it's not that much but when you have to buy clothes and shoes and keep a roof over their head and food for them, that's a lot of money. Adds up.”
Metro School is not eligible for CEP, which is a federal program offering free lunches for schools and school districts in low-income areas without requiring an application.
In the video at the top of this webpage, reporter DaShawn Brown spoke with Moorehead, who expressed concerns about the change.
