FREE MEALS FOR STUDENTS!
Broward County Public Schools Food and Nutrition Services (BCPSFNS) offers FREE curbside Grab-and-Go meals for all children 18 years of age or younger at all Elementary, Middle, and High schools.
The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the Summer Feeding Program with a summer meals flexibility waiver, which allows BCPSFNS to offer meals at no cost to all children in the community.
Cafeteria Information - Not applicable this year
Applying for Free/Reduced Lunch
The link to apply for meals can be found on the home page of this website. Please do so as soon as you can so your child/children may be prepared for the first day of school if eligible. Your eligibility will be emailed to you or you may receive a message through our ParentLink System.
Breakfast is served each day from 7:30AM until 7:50AM. This allows time for a student to get his/her breakfast and get to class on time. A hot lunch is also served daily. Milk is served with each lunch. Milk may be purchased separately. If a student is not permitted to drink milk, he or she may be served soy milk if a prescription from a doctor is sent to Mrs. Anderson, the Cafeteria Manager. Three (3) days of meal charges are permitted and a child must repay before another meal can be charged.
We are using a computerized number system. Each child receives a number, which they punch in at the register. The number remains the same throughout their enrollment in Broward County Schools. Please help your child memorize the number as it helps the speed of the lunch serving line.
You are now able to make payments online for your child's/children meals. Please go to BCPS Online Payments

All students will have 30 minutes for lunch. We operate a closed campus, which means that all students remain on campus during their lunch period.
Cokes or other drinks requiring bottles or cans are not recommended in the cafeteria. Students are not allowed to use the machines in the teachers’ lounge or the cafeteria. We ask that when you pack your child’s lunch that you remember to put in all the necessary utensils. The cafeteria is not permitted to supply napkins and utensils to students who have not purchased lunch.
Please teach your child how to open the things you send in their lunch. Try to use this rule: If your child cannot open it, do not send it!
The cafeteria is a place where good manners and social skills should be developed and practiced. Each student is expected to practice the rules of good behavior they use at home with their family. Some simple rules of courteous behavior that make the lunch period pleasant and relaxed are:
- Observing good dining room manners at the table
- Leaving the table and surrounding area clean and orderly
- Properly disposing of trash
- Using “quiet” voices
- Lining up quietly
Birthdays may be recognized during your child’s lunch time in the cafeteria. A store bought item such as cupcakes or cookies may be provided to child's class where it will be distributed during their lunch time. Balloons, clowns, hats, face painting, etc. are not permitted.
Note: Birthday recognitions may not be scheduled during instructional class times. A birthday recognition as described above may be conducted during snack time or be part of an approved holiday party.
When sending food items to school for children other than your own, these items MUST be store bought. Home-baked items are not allowed per county policy and will be sent home.
