• Department Overview

    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.

    As our schools reopen, it remains critical for our students to continue to receive nutritious meals. To that end, the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced that it will provide funding for school districts to serve meals to all children at no cost to families into the fall months. This provides much needed financial relief for families as we begin our re-entry to the 2020-21 school year. Please note that this applies only to breakfast and lunch meals, and does not include snacks or “a la carte” items.
