Students in Palm Springs, Calif., to get universal free meals

Beginning this upcoming school year, Palm Springs Unified School District in Palm Springs, Calif., will offer universal free meals, Desert Sun reports.

Through the federal Community Eligibility Provision, PSUSD students will receive breakfast and lunch on school days free of charge.

"Everyone’s going to benefit regardless of their income status," Director of Nutrition Services Stephanie Bruce told Desert Sun. "Every student will have access to a complete meal."

Though students’ families will no longer need to apply for free and reduced-price meals, they will be asked to submit an “education benefit form” to help ensure state funding for the district.
