Free Breakfast, Lunch for Dayton Public School Students

DAYTON -- In less than two weeks, Dayton Public School students head back to the classroom.  Administrators wanted to make sure parents are prepared for the new changes.

From bus routes to uniform requirements to bell schedules, the district wants to make sure parents have everything they need to be prepared for the school year.  But probably the biggest and most exciting change that they found out at an informational meeting Monday night is there will be free breakfast and lunch for every student this year.

"That's two meals a day for the kids, that's amazing, amazing.  I've never heard of that anywhere else and if there's anywhere that should happen, it's here," said parent Thomas Nealeigh.

For the first time ever, all Dayton Public School students will be able to eat two meals a day, five days a week, for free. Parents are breathing a sigh of relief, not only over the huge savings for their family, but also because of the burden now lifted, when trying to rush their kids off to school.

"Timewise, knowing that when we get them to school they will really be taken care of the entire day. They're not going to be hungry coming home," Nealeigh said.

DPS is able to implement the pilot program thanks to a grant the district qualified for under the USDA Healthy, Hunger-free Kids Act. The announcement was made Monday night at a Back-to-School Informational, which is the first in a series of meetings hosted by the district leading up to the start of school on Aug. 15.

"It's a wonderful thing because students will now be able to participate in learning studies with a full stomach," said Tomi Perry Gillipisie with DPS.

"What a difference in their lives it's going to make. I remember growing up and hearing about kids not eating and that's never good. So getting them all this head start will make a huge difference," said Nealeigh.

The district is holding the information fairs at various schools all week.  For a list of times and locations, click here.
