Beginning in the new semester of autumn 2008, the City of Liuzhou officially began offering free lunches to over 100,000 rural students enrolled in nine-year compulsory education in the three counties under its jurisdiction: Rong'an, Sanjiang and Rongshui. Financing bodies at the municipal and county levels of Liuzhou will devote 33.578 million yuan each year for this cause.

The free lunch standard is set at two yuan per student for each meal. Not counting winter and summer vacations, weekends and national holidays, each student is entitled to 200 days of free lunch every year.

The Municipal Party Committee and the Municipal Government of Liuzhou require that subsidies be directly allocated to schools that have student cafeterias. For rural schools without cafeterias, each county and each school must use every method to ensure the supply of free lunches under the precondition of guaranteeing students' dining safety. They must not directly issue subsidies to students or their parents.
