LEE COUNTY, Fla. - Lee County Public Schools want to offer free breakfast to every student starting this fall.

Studies show that kids to eat a good breakfast have better focus, and therefore, student achievement improves. Right now, Lee County school officials believe that many kids are coming to school hungry.

Food services will eat the extra cost of the program by making changes elsewhere. The school board needs to approve the plan at a meeting in June.
