A $30,000 donation will help the Madison Metropolitan School District serve more than 100,000 meals to students next year.

The Nimick Forbesway Foundation gave the $30,000 grant to the Foundation for Madison's Public Schools. FMPS provides free, healthy breakfasts to students in need.

Last year, FMPS gave more than 50,000 meals to economically disadvantaged students. Children who qualify for reduced-cost lunch are eligible for these free breakfasts.

The $30,000 grant will help FMPS provide more than 110,000 breakfasts in the upcoming school year, as well as the 2013-2014 school year.
