Story excerpt:

"Aurora Public Schools announced it has passed out more than 600,000 free meals in less than two month during the COVID-19 pandemic, an unprecedented milestone for the school district under its expanded free meal program.

Aurora Public Schools applied for a special waiver through the federal government, increasing the ability to provide breakfast, lunch and dinner to children. APS also teamed up with community partners to expand the program to parents, enabling APS to provide free meals to entire families, including parents, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Since launching the free meal program March 17, APS has passed out more than 600,000 meals."
