Child Nutrition Services

Brewster Central Schools believes that one of the most important ways in which we can help our children perform better in their classrooms is to provide them with the nutrition necessary for the healthy growth of their minds and bodies. Therefore, we provide breakfast and/or lunch in our schools every day.

We invite students to show their support for their school food service program through participation.
