A big change is coming to all Harlingen CISD schools starting in the fall.

The board trustees have voted to approve free breakfast and lunch for all students at all schools.

The change will start during the Fall 2014.

School district officials said the goal is to provide students with nutritionally sound meals at no cost that would promote both learning and achievement.

An estimated 18,500 students are expected to receive a free breakfast and lunch every day of the school year.
