GA SCHOOL DISTRICT INSTALLS PALM SCANNERS FOR LUNCH PROGRAM

“It’s a secure way to ensure a student’s identity when paying for a school meal…”

Want a school lunch? Get your palm scanned.

That’s the new policy being implemented at elementary schools in Muscogee County, Georgia for the 2015-16 school year.

The district will be using scanning devices that take “a super high-resolution infrared photograph of the vein pattern just below the skin,” WTVM reports.

The image is “recorded, digitized and stored on an encrypted server.”
