Some good news about school lunches for kids!
The USDA is extending a program that offers free meals to schoolchildren into next year.
The Child Nutrition Program will now run through June 30th of 2022, making free meals available to students regardless of their ability to pay.
Ag Secretary Tom Vilsack said that “Students’ success in the classroom goes hand in hand with their ability to access basic needs like healthy and nutritious meals”.
