The Taylor Public Schools District can now provide breakfast and lunch to all students free of charge, according to the News-Herald. 

The school district has received a Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) from the federal government that allows them to serve the free meals to enrolled students. 

All eight elementary schools, middle schools and the new Taylor High School are covered by the provision. 

The News-Herald reports Taylor Public Schools will benefit from the provision for four years before reevaluation. 

In September 2017, the cost of student meals ranged from $1.25 to $3.25.
