I read about this last week, got busy, and forgot to share this!
The state of California is joining cities like Chicago and Boston in offering free school lunches and breakfasts to students. Previously students families had to meet certain income requirements to qualify for discounted or free school meals.
I’m so glad that this is now available to everyone. There are a lot of people who didn’t qualify but are facing food insecurity.
For more information, The NPR acrticle here has some deets. Be on the look out for information coming from your school district in your email or as a flyer in your kids backpack the few day of school.
Santee School District sent out an email earlier this week.
