Posted: Updated:
Los Angeles, CA -

(FOX 11) LAUSD students are heading back to school next week and besides feeding their minds, it's important to start with feeding a healthy body.

The District offers fresh, nutritious meal programs for students at a reduced price or in many cases, the meals are free. It's part of the National School Lunch Program and 80% of LAUSD students qualify. The key is, new and returning students must apply to be a part of the program this year.

Mannish Singh is in charge of the program for the LAUSD, he says "parents can go online or submit paper work to enroll in the program. There is a 30 day grace period for students who were in the program before."

Lower income families, homeless and undocumented students all qualify for these meals. A regular priced lunch for elementary school kids costs $2.00 and for middle school it's 2.50.

The goal is to make sure students have nutritious balanced meals to stay healthy and combat childhood obesity.
