Applying pressure to cash strapped parents is the tactic one school is taking to collect lunch debts.

Rhode island’s Cranston School District decided to hire a collection agency to get the money its owed for school lunches. The COO of the district sent a letter to parents saying it took the measure because there hasn’t been success in getting the money due.

Lunch at a public elementary school in Cranston costs $2.50 per day. For middle school and high school students, it's $3.25 a day.

Parents who owe $20 or more and who haven't paid off the balance within 60 days will receive a letter from the collection agency starting next year.Source: WTHR
