COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KRDO) -- It’s looking like next school year, children in Colorado will receive free lunch every day at school.

Unofficial 2022 Election results show proposition FF passing easily with 55 percent of the vote, creating the Healthy School Meals For All program.

Starting next school year, K-12 kids will receive free lunch, and Coloradans making more than $300,000 a year will be footing the bill.

"We just went to Colorado voters and asked them to de-stigmatize school meals, and make sure that healthy school meals were available to all students, regardless of their socioeconomic status,” said Patience Kabwasa, Executive Director of Food to Power.

Food to Power hopes ensuring all students have a healthy lunch will cultivate even stronger students in Colorado.

This ballot initiative makes sure that all students are able to receive a fresh hot meal in school during their school day so that it does bolster learning.".

Starting in the 2023-2024 school year, school districts can opt into this program that will provide free school breakfast and lunch. »
