WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — The Wichita school district is considering a program that would offer free breakfast and lunch for all students at six schools next year. The Community Eligibility and Provision program gives schools in high-poverty areas the option of serving the meals to all students, regardless of their families' economic situation. David Paul, director of nutrition services for the district, says the program might be used next year at Hamilton Middle School and at Gardiner, Harry Street, Park, Stanley and Washington elementary schools. The Wichita Eagle reports the program was available to Kansas schools for the first time this year. A few districts, including Topeka and Kansas City, Kansas, are participating. Supporters say the program helps ensure that more low-income students have access to healthy meals during the day.
