DES MOINES, Iowa — Des Moines Public Schools will offer meals at no cost to all students at 35 schools and three early learning centers for the upcoming school year.

The program is called Community Eligibility Provision and is fully funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. It covers the costs of breakfast and lunch for all students at these schools, which have been identified as having a high number of students living in poverty.

The school also won’t have to fill out paperwork dealing with free and reduced price meals. That will save the district time and money.

The schools that already have meals at no cost to students are:

  • Capitol View Elementary School

  • Harding Middle School
  • Hiatt Middle School
