LAS VEGAS (KTNV) — The Department of Agriculture says it's extending the free school lunch program through next year.

Schools can also continue providing breakfast and after-school snacks in non-group settings.

The USDA says this ensures children are getting nutritious options like fruits, vegetables, whole grains and milk.

The Clark County School District has given millions of free meals to kids since the beginning of the pandemic.
