The article relates the change in the food service policy of Edmonds School District in Washington. Barbara Lloyd, foodservice director, says large outstanding debt prompted them to change their policy. They tried various methods for communicating with parents with regards to the amount of debt they were accruing. On October 1, 2008, they adopted a safety net meal program which enables K-12 students to charge meals up to $15. Their outstanding debt is now down to $153,000. The number of safety net meals that they are giving out has also declined.
