WAYNE, Mich. (WJBK) - A school district in southeastern Michigan is now able to give its students free meals.
All K-12 students at Wayne-Westland Community Schools will be able to receive free breakfast and lunch thanks to the Community Eligibility Provision.
CEP allows schools in low-income areas to provide free meals without the burden of collecting applications and paperwork from families.
The District will be receiving reimbursements for the costs of these meals from the State of Michigan. This initiative does not cost the district anything and no money will be taken out of the general fund for this program.
The Wayne-Westland Community Schools is comprised of eleven elementary schools (K-4), two upper elementary schools (5-6), two middle schools (7-8), two high schools (9-12) and an ultra-modern facility for career/technical training.
