Federal authorities have approved Ohio's new plan to extend a COVID-related program for 600 thousand eligible school kids missing out on free or reduced-price meals.

State officials say some Ohio school children are eligible to receive 300 dollars in reimbursements for free and reduced lunches.  

A report by a non-profit advocacy group called The Food Research and Action Center shows 11 thousand more low-income Ohio children got free or reduced-price school breakfasts last year.
