NYC weighs school lunch cuts to close budget gap

New York City is looking for ways to trim its lunch tab at 1,500 public schools.

The Bloomberg Administration reportedly is considering a plan to reduce the selection of hot meals that are offered to students.

Schools where students have three hot meal choices would be reduced to two, and those with two choices would be cut to one.

It could even cut the number of schools where students are given a free lunch.

The Department of Education currently serves 870,000 meals a day and has worked to increase healthy choices for students.

The proposal is projected to save almost $24 million.
