A New Hampshire school district that’s struggled with unpaid student lunch bills has learned it failed to file for federal reimbursements for its food service program for two years.

The Claremont district’s business and finance director said that oversight resulted in Claremont losing out on several hundred thousand dollars.

Acting Superintendent Cory LeClair told the school board that filing for the National School Lunch program is supposed to be done before the start of the school year, but in 2018 it was not submitted until Jan. 30. This year, the filing was not completed until early February.
