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.
