DAVIESS COUNTY -- It’s the most important meal of the day and soon, students at North Daviess County Schools will be getting free breakfast.

Currently, about 20% of the students get breakfast at school.  Officials hope to get that to about 60%.

"Concentration you know the cognitive development. The cognitive responses. The kids do much better when they've had a nutritious breakfast," said elementary school principal Rene Judy speaking to WTHI-TV.

The free breakfast program is being paid for by refunds received by the USDA.
