NACS warns of scammers using school meal programs to fool Hoosiers

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WPTA21) - Reports from the Indianapolis area have prompted at least one local school system to put residents on the alert for scammers claiming to represent schools.

Northwest Allen County Schools said they have been made aware of crooks who are going door-to-door pretending to take meal orders, but in fact, looking for ways to victimize the person who answers.

NACS offered a link to its own meal procedures, which do not involve visits to student homes.
