Thanks to a new federal program, children at five Beaufort County schools will now get free lunch and breakfast.
Community Eligibility Provision provides free meals to all students in schools that serve predominately low income children.
The five schools in Beaufort County that will participate in this program are St. Helena Elementary, Shanklin Elementary, Whale Branch Elementary, middle and high school.
The program will help more than 9,000 students.
