More Students on Free and Reduced Lunch

by Jessica Cervantez

At least one East Texas school district is giving more students free or reduced price lunches then ever before.

Central Independent School District has never been higher than 42% when it comes to free and reduced lunch but, right now, the school is at 46%.

The cafeteria director says the higher numbers have a lot to do with the economy. Right now, there are still a lot of hurricane evacuees at the school. They automatically qualify for free lunch.
