Baldwin County Schools could lose free lunch program

The Baldwin County School District shared an article to Facebook Thursday stating the district could lose its free lunch program. 

The captions states, "if more applications aren't submitted in the next month, causing the program to expire, families could be paying almost $700 per student per year." 

For the nutrition program to operate, it needs 78 percent of students to qualify for free and reduced meals, according to the article

Currently, all families in Baldwin County public schools receive free meals, but if more applications aren't submitted, parents will have to pay $1.25 for breakfast and $2.50 for lunch each day.

The payments would add up to $675 a year for each student.
