Unlike many government programs, federal reimbursements for school meals are not being affected by the government shutdown. But schools can choose from different federal programs like Free and Reduced meals or Community Eligibility to cover costs for students in need.

One of those programs allows all students in a qualifying school or district to eat for free.

Children file in at Mayfield Middle School for lunch. The popular option? Dominoes Pizza with wheat crust.
