Five schools in Madison County have qualified for and will be enacting a program that allows them to give free breakfasts and lunches to all of their students, the Madison County Board of Education announced Wednesday.
Most kids look forward to getting out of school but for some it means they may not get enough to eat. That’s more than half the district’s enrollment.
This summer FCPS, God’s Pantry and Fresh Approach are teaming together to make sure all kids can eat healthy this summer.
Kids Eat Here, a new local initiative to promote the federal Summer Food Service Program, aims to ensure that all students have enough to eat when school is out. “This initiative is all about leveraging resources to make sure no child goes hungry,” Mayor Jim Gray said Wednesday in announcing the kickoff. “We believe the program can reach even more children.”
