KENNETT, MO (KAIT) - The Kennett School District is making sure no elementary student starts the school day on an empty stomach.
Each classroom receives a wagon filled with free breakfast food before the start of first period classes.
The school district started the program earlier this month. Every student has several options each day, including hot breakfast items, fruit and yogurt.
"I have a class that eats a lot," South Elementary fifth grade teacher Andi Maddox said. "They'll wipe me out this morning."
Before the wagons came, students said their stomachs were usually empty until lunch. Now, students have plenty of food to tide them over.
