Food and Nutrition - Power Up
The Food and Nutrition Services Department is committed to providing our students with well-balanced nutritious meals to support student achievement. Our focus is to aid student learning by educating and serving meals that reinforce lifelong healthy lifestyles. We encourage our students to POWER-UP with school breakfast, at no charge for all students, and school lunch which provides students the energy they need to learn and grow.
Our Food and Nutrition Services Cafeteria offers a variety and well-balanced nutritious meals at a low cost. School lunches provide an assortment of foods including daily entree salads and fresh fruit. School meals are healthy, meeting the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. By choosing lunch at school, students learn to make healthy choices, reinforcing nutrition education taught in the classroom. Delicious breakfasts are served daily in all Broward County Public schools.
The Most Important Meal of the Day
Breakfast is served from 7:15 am until 7:45 am. Students who are walkers or car riders must be in the cafeteria before 7:45 am, if they are eating breakfast.
Only students arriving before 7:30 am may enter the cafeteria on the north side of the cafeteria (Dykes Rd) side. Parents will no longer be able to eat breakfast with students.
Ice Cream money may only come from the students lunch account. Please make sure that your child has money in his/her lunch account for ice-cream and any alacarte items purchased. No cash or checks are accepted.

The online application is an easy and convenient way for parents and guardians to submit online multi-child meal benefit applications. There is not a fee for using the website as the service is provided free of charge by your District. The online multi-child application is located at Myschoolapps.com website. If you already applied online for Free and Reduced-Price Meal Benefits, contact the Meal Benefits office at 754-321-0250 for application status.
Students are expected to pay for their meal at the time of service. Broward County Public Schools encourages families to complete a meal benefits application to determine eligibility for free and reduced-price meals. All students must pay the full price for lunch unless designated through the Meal Benefits office to be eligible for free or reduced-price meals.
