Children at several Broward Country Public Schools will be getting a nutritious dinner after expanding their Aftercare Supper Program.
Now serving nutritious meals to 106 schools, the supper program ensures 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.
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), are offered in the school’s cafeteria. The healthy meals are available to children participating in after-school programs at no separate charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
Students in Tamarac may attend one the following schools that offer this program: Broadview Elementary, Pinewood Elementary, Discovery Elementary, Boyd Anderson High School and Coral Glades High School. All Broward County Public Schools are listed here:
