Phenix City public schools now offer free breakfast to all students

Posted: Updated:
PHENIX CITY, AL (WTVM) -

When Phenix City public school students return to class on Monday, all students from the district are eligible to receive free breakfast, regardless of their family's income.

It's all part of a federal pilot program for Phenix City schools. School districts where at least 60 percent of students are eligible for free or reduced meals may qualify for the program.

School nutrition officials hope an increase in breakfast numbers will mean less tardies, better attendance, and healthier students.
