Kansas City Public Schools students eat for free starting in the fall

KANSAS CITY, Mo. - Starting this fall, Kansas City Public Schools students will eat for free.

The district will serve all students free breakfast and lunch without their families having to fill out any forms.

It's part of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act.

It includes all students regardless of family income.

Ninety-two percent of students in the district are already on free or reduced-price meals.

Superintendent Dr. Stephen Green said the change means more children will be able to learn because they won't be hungry during class.
