The Department of Education supports a plan to provide free lunches to any student.

A new memo orders all schools to give kids lunch if they ask for it, whether they can pay or not.

The DOE says every child should have access to a healthy meal, regardless of income.

Around 80 percent of students currently qualify for free lunch, but some New Yorkers are calling on the mayor to provide funding in the next budget to make it universal.

A spokesperson for Mayor Bill de Blasio says he is looking into expanding the program.
