BATON ROUGE, LA (WAFB) - A new program by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) allows students to receive a free meal, similar to how students are given textbooks and bus transportation at no cost.

Officials with the East Baton Rouge Parish School System said all of the public school students enrolled in schools participating in the national school lunch and breakfast program will be eligible for lunches and breakfasts at no charge for the upcoming school year.

Officials also said students who bring their own lunch to school are eligible to get free milk if they select a fruit or vegetable and another item, like a whole grain roll.
