    Universal Free Breakfast

    The Department of Education has finalized the list of Broward County Schools selected for Universal Free Breakfast. Dillard Elementary remains on the list for the 2019 - 2020 school year. 

    • All students in schools selected as a "Universal Free Breakfast" site are eligible for free breakfast daily.  There are 77 schools in the district that were selected by DOE.  
    • Payment for lunch meals is required for any students with a reduced and paid eligibility.
    • Ala carte sales such as ice cream, bottled water, etc. require payment from all students at all meals.
    • All families need to complete a new Meal Benefit application for the current school year. Online submissions are suggested to expedite the process and minimize hardship.
    • Students enrolled in Broward County Schools may eat on last year's eligibility for the first few weeks of school only. Any student who has not completed a new application for the this school year revert to paid status after October 5, 2019.

    Students who are new to Broward County Schools from out of county or country automatically become a "paid eligibility".  These families must be encouraged to complete the Meal Benefit application as soon as possible to determine if they are eligible free or reduced priced meals.  (e.g. It does not matter if a student received free or reduced meals in Miami Dade County or in Michigan last year and now attends school here.)
