Food and Nutrition
Boston Public Schools provides healthy and appealing meal choices for students. All schools serve breakfast and lunch daily. Those with after-school programs may also serve an after-school meal.
All of the meals we offer meet the nutrition requirements set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Food & Nutrition Service to support children’s healthy growth and development.
BPS participates in the Community Eligibility Option. Through this federal program, breakfast and lunch are available to all students in all schools at no cost, regardless of family income.
Meals are free for all students. Teachers, staff and visitors can purchase breakfast for $2.75 and lunch for $3.50.
