Miami-Dade and Broward County public schools will serve students lunch and breakfast free of charge for the 2022-23 school year.
Both districts made the announcement Monday, ahead of the start of the school year. The first day of school begins Tuesday for Broward and Wednesday for Miami-Dade.
The free lunch is an amendment to the school board's policy for serving meals to students under the National School Lunch / School Breakfast Program, the Miami-Dade Schools district said in a news release Monday. For additional information, contact the Department of Food and Nutrition.
