Nutrition Services

Students who eat breakfast and lunch every day have higher academic achievement and fewer behavior challenges than students who skip meals. At Brooklyn Center Community Schools, we do everything we can to make sure students are healthy, life-long learners.

 

Nutritious, creative breakfast and lunch

School lunch isn’t what it used to be! We offer whole grains, fresh salad bars and international cuisine to keep students satisfied and ready to learn.

Free & Reduced Lunch

We are pleased to inform you that Brooklyn Center Schools ISD#286 will be implementing a new provision available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. It is called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) and will begin this fall for the 2022-2023 school year. Through this provision, all students enrolled at BCCS are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at no charge to your household each day of the 2023-24 school year.

Families do not need to put any money into their lunch accounts this year.

Our district is eligible to receive additional state and federal funds based on the number of students enrolled who reside in households that meet established federal income guidelines. We use the Application for Educational Benefits to collect household information. If you have not already, you still need to complete the Application for Educational Benefits and turn it into your front office by Oct. 17, 2022. See the attached document or click here to fill out your application online.

Spirit Food Fund

Brooklyn Center Community Schools, ISD 286, is dedicated to preparing high-quality, affordable meals for all students. School meals help students sustain the energy they need to be successful in the classroom.

Though nothing should stand in the way of a child's access to a nutritious meal, many families experience financial difficulties and cannot afford to keep money in their student's school lunch account. That is why Brooklyn Center Community Schools has created a Spirit Food Fund. Families and community members are invited to donate to the Spirit Food Fund to help a student in need pay for a school meal.

How to donate to the Spirit Food Fund:
