  • My DD is in kindergarden, but all the akron area where we live weather elementray school or high school they call get free lunches. No matter how much you make (if it weren't for that we would have to buy the school lunch) she gets free lunches they even offer free breakfast so my DD does eat even breakfast at school sometimes.
