All Pittsburgh schools students to get free lunch

PITTSBURGH (AP) — Pittsburgh Public Schools officials say all 25,000 students in its 54 schools will receive free lunches when the new school year begins next week.

The district's students will qualify under the Community Eligibility Provision of the U.S. Department of Agriculture's National School Lunch and Breakfast programs.

The program lets school districts that serve mostly low-income areas to make all students eligible for the free meals without requiring individual students to file income eligibility applications.

All students in the district had already been receiving free breakfasts under the program.
