DES MOINES, Iowa — The parents of thousands of grade school students could be in line for a refund.
It stems from a class-action lawsuit filed against Martin Brothers Distributing and the Iowa Association for Educational Purchasing.
The lawsuit claims the two companies conspired to reduce competition for school lunch contracts. Martin Brothers has agreed to a nearly $2 million settlement.
The money will be refunded to parents who paid for school lunch between January of 2000 and August of this year. Refunds will total $3.50 per student per year.
You can find the list of schools involved in the settlement and instructions on how to join the lawsuit and file a claim here.
All claims must be filed by the end of the month.
