PARSIPPANY HILLS - Students at Parsippany Hills High School held a boycott of school lunches today.
The students say they are paying more money for smaller sized portions this year. Many brought in brown paper bagged lunches as a form of peaceful protest to the new menu changes.
New federal guidelines stemming from the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act, signed by President Obama nearly two years ago, call for limits on protein and bread, and an increase in vegetables and fruits. The changes have also come at an increased cost.
A Facebook group created by student organizer Brandon Faris has more than 1,200 members.
