UPDATE, Sept. 13: Adds statement from Kent school district and information about Title I and Learning Assistance Program funding.
Five schools in Kent that were offering free meals to all students will no longer have the program this school year. Separately, in Seattle, United Way of King County has ended a grant for a breakfast pilot program in nine schools.
In the Kent school district, five high-poverty elementary schools had been using what's called the Community Eligibility Provision to provide free meals to all students. That means any kid could eat for free, even if the family did not qualify for a free or reduced-price meal.
