New York’s public schools will begin offering free school lunches to children with ADHD in the coming weeks, the New York Times reported.
The free meals, which are being offered at locations across the city, include free school supplies, snacks, and meals, the Times reported on Tuesday.
New York school district officials did not immediately respond to the Times’ request for comment.
The announcement comes as lawmakers have begun weighing legislation that would allow parents to opt their children out of school in order to take advantage of free school meals.
The move comes after a New York state judge ruled earlier this month that a program that helps parents get free school lunch would not be legal.
A separate bill passed in the New Jersey Legislature would allow for parents to enroll their children in free school meal programs.
Earlier this month, a New Jersey judge ruled that a similar program that would have provided free school breakfast to students with disabilities would not violate the state’s public accommodations law.
