You’ve heard the saying, “there is no such thing as a free lunch.” That’s why Cranston Schools are now looking to collect unpaid lunch balances.
Chief Operating Officer Raymond L. Votto, Jr. sent a letter to all parents in the district, informing them the district has hired Transworld Systems – a collection agency – to try an recoup money owed for lunches.
Votto said the school district wrote off $95,508 in unpaid lunches from September 2016 through June 2018. And it hasn’t gotten better this school year. Since September, he said the unpaid lunch balance is $45,859.
