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

October 15, 2019

Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) has expanded its Afterschool Supper Program to include Rickards Middle School and Silver Lakes Middle School, for a total of 122 schools serving nutritious supper meals to students. The supper meals ensure that more than 14,500 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 federal Child Care Food 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 served in school cafeterias. 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. Rickards Middle School and Silver Lakes Middle School will begin serving supper this month for the 2019/20 school year.
