Federal Program Gives Local Students Free Breakfasts and Lunches at More Schools

The Washoe County School District announced today that more students will be given free lunches and breakfasts at area schools this academic year.

Nearly 40 schools are offering the Community Eligibility Provision program, regardless of family income.

“We have increased the number of schools offering these free meals across the board this year from 24 to 39 schools,” said Interim Superintendent Dr. Kristen McNeill. “We know that when students are hungry, they are not learning as well as they could. We want all of our students—no matter what challenges their families are facing—to be able to make the most of their educational opportunities. This is part of our District’s ongoing efforts to help our students succeed.”
