Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) has expanded its Aftercare Supper Program to include six additional school sites, for a total of 106 schools serving meals to students.
The supper meals ensure that more than 14,000 students participating in regularly scheduled after-school educational or enrichment activity programs receive the nutrition they need to learn and grow.
The suppers are funded through the Child Care Food Program (CCFP), a federally funded program, which provides healthy meals in the child care setting. Meals meet all USDA requirements and include a milk, fruit, vegetable, grain and meal (or meat alternate), and are offered in the school’s cafeteria.
The meals are available to children participating in after-school programs at no separate charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability. New school sites for the 2016/17 school year include Coral Cove Elementary School and Coral Glades High School.
