NC, SC students to get free breakfast in class

GREENSBORO, N.C. (AP) — School systems in North Carolina and South Carolina are among 15 nationwide where students will be able to eat breakfast at school for free this year.

The Breakfast in the Classroom program uses a $5 million grant from the Walmart Foundation to feed students. The program began last year in five school districts and is adding 10 this year, including Guilford County schools in Greensboro and Charleston County schools in South Carolina.

Several groups collaborate on the program, which provides a free breakfast to all students. The meal is provided in the classroom, not the cafeteria.

Officials say many students eligible for the federally funded school breakfast program don't participate for several reasons, including that they don't want to be labeled as low-income, bus schedules and arriving late to school.
