Fuller tummies, lower stigma on free meal program

Good Monday evening, everyone. This is what is ahead on our 10 p.m. newscast:

When many students return to school for the first day tomorrow, may will be receiving free breakfast and lunch. In fact, 25 schools within the Huntsville City School District will provide free breakfast and lunch to all students regardless of income. Coming up at 10 - why some schools are participating in the Federal program while others are not.

Classes will also resume tomorrow for Madison City Schools. But at least one high school is in the middle of major renovations. Bob Jones High School is currently undergoing a $20-million renovation, but principal Robby Parker says they are ready for the new school year. The project started back in May and it's expected to be completed August 2015. More from the campus at 10.

And new tonight at 10, local reaction on both sides to a federal judge’s ruling today that Alabama's newest abortion laws is unconstitutional. U.S District Judge Myron Thompson said the law is too strict, and denies the right of women who want abortions. Pro-life and pro-choice advocates weigh in at 10.

Join us for these stories and more tonight on WAFF 48 News at 10.

See you then!
