NORWALK : Prepaid School Meals

August 21, 1986

The Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District has come up with a way to prevent grade-school tots from losing their daily lunch money: an $18 prepaid meal ticket.

Under the plan, youngsters get 21 meals for the price of 20 by paying ahead of time. Jenny Gamachi, food services director for the school district, said the plan was used successfully with high school students for the first time last year. She said it helps not only students who have trouble keeping track of 90 cents each day, but it also saves headaches for parents and school administrators.
