Kids were lined up from the kitchen back into the main hallway waiting for breakfast on the first day of school at Frazee-Vergas Elementary Tuesday, Sept. 5. Kids will receive a free breakfast and lunch during the 2023-24 school year as part of the Free School Meals bill that was signed into law in March by Gov. Tim Walz. This legislation provides the reimbursement for a free breakfast and lunch to students who receive meals through their school’s participation in the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program.
