Congressional candidate Matt Doheny, at the two o’clock position, and schools superintendent Roger Clough, at 12 o’clock, had lunch with students.

MASSENA -- Republican congressional candidate Matt Doheny and Superintendent Roger Clough recently joined Massena Central High School students for lunch, where students raised their concerns about the Hunger Kids Free Act mandate.

The program offers a healthier meal, but the students argued they are not getting enough to fuel them through the day and that much of what is being served is ending up in the garbage can.

More students are bringing their lunch to school as a result, and Clough worries that lunch sales are down, which could result in a deficit for the end of the year.
