With the annexation of the Roseland neighborhood by the city of Santa Rosa, one of the things that has not changed is the high rate of students qualifying for free and reduced lunches at school. Nearly 90 percent of students in the district are eligible for this key boost to their health  that’s according to the California Department of Education.

KRCB’s Adia White went to the first day of school at Roseland Elementary and has this report.

Our Roseland Health Project is done in partnership with KBBF, Radio 89.1 FM, Santa Rosa's bilingual community radio station.
