Brunswick County to give free breakfast to elementary students

BRUNSWICK COUNTY, NC (WECT) - The Brunswick County School Board has made the decision to offer a free breakfast to all elementary school students in the county. It will start in January and run through the end of the school year.

School leaders are hoping that the program will be successful so that they will eventually be able to offer the free breakfast to middle and high school students as well.

Currently, students can only get a free breakfast if they meet certain qualifications.

School leaders say the money for the free breakfast comes from federal funds.
