A school district in North Carolina will be giving all students free breakfast and lunch in the next school year.

Brunswick County Schools announced the lunch policy change Wednesday, WTVD reports. The district changed the policy because of Hurricane Florence and its lasting devastation. 

With more than 40 percent of the district's households affected by Florence, a news release says, the Community Eligibility Provision Program for the National School Lunch Program kicked in to allowing the school to provide the meals for free.
