Students in all area school districts will get free meals for the next few months, thanks to the USDA. 

All students, regardless of family income, will be eligible for free breakfast and free lunch each school day until money provided by the USDA runs out. That’s expected to happen sometime in December. 

Once funding runs out, the districts will revert back to normal meal procedures.
