Broward County Public Schools (BCPS) has expanded its Afterschool Supper Program to include three additional school sites, for a total of 120 schools serving nutritious 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 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 in August and September for the 2019/20 school year are Hollywood Central Elementary School, Winston Park Elementary School, and J.P. Taravella High School.  Elementary schools will begin serving supper August 14, 2019, and J.P. Taravella High will begin September 3, 2019.
