Starting September 2, 2014, 42 Broward County public schools will participate in the Child Care Food Program, which is a federally funded program that provides healthy meals and snacks in the child care setting. Students enrolled in aftercare programs at designated schools will enjoy a nutritious early supper at school. Meals will meet all USDA requirements and include a milk, fruit, vegetable, grain and meat (or meat alternate) and will be offered in the school’s cafeteria. The healthy meals are provided at no charge to students.
