Public schools in Nevada serving low-income families may soon be required to offer healthy breakfast to students who might not otherwise eat a morning meal.
The bill, Senate Bill 503, would require free breakfast for all students in schools where 70 percent of students or more are eligible for free or reduced-price lunch.
State officials say 103 elementary schools now serve breakfast, but the bill could add another 120 to the program.
Latinos make up the largest ethnic group in Nevada’s public schools, according to a study.
