BCPS Expands Afterschool Supper Program Over 100 Schools Now Offer Nutritious Meals in Aftercare Program

December 5, 2018

BCPS Expands Afterschool Supper Program

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) has expanded its Afterschool Supper Program to include two additional school sites, for a total of 117 schools serving nutritious meals to students. The supper meals ensure that more than 14,000 students participating in regularly scheduled afterschool educational or enrichment activity programs receive the nutrition they need to learn and grow. The suppers are funded through the Child Care Food Program, a federally funded program, which provides healthy meals in the childcare setting. Meals meet all USDA requirements and include a milk, fruit, vegetable, grain and meat (or meat alternate), and are offered in the school’s cafeteria. The healthy meals are available to children participating in afterschool programs at no separate charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability. The new school sites beginning January 2019, include Lloyd Estates Elementary School and Oriole Elementary School.
