KENNEWICK, Wash. - Breakfast is widely considered the most important meal of the day and students in the Kennewick School District get the morning meal free all week. The free meals are part of National Breakfast Week.
Sodexo, the company that prepares meals for the district, is covering the cost.
Sam Shick, the district's Nutrition Services Director, believes it's essential that students focus on eating a nutritious breakfast everyday.
"They're able to have breakfast, not have to pay for it and start their day off with a healthy nutritious breakfast and so we think that's very important," said Schick.
The Kennewick School District serves more than 3,000 meals each morning throughout the school year.
