Presidential candidate U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren has announced her plan to offer universal free breakfast and lunch to public school students from prekindergarten to 12th grade, the Des Moines Register reports. 

The free meals are a part of education plan, which would be funded through her proposed wealth tax that would levy a 2% tax on people whose net worth is over $50 million. 

Warren is not the only lawmaker looking to offer free school meals to students. Last week, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and U.S. Rep. Ilhan Omar introduced a bill that would offer up to three free school meals to public school children daily.
