Important Information

Student Meal Pickup Service

 
STUDENT MEAL PICKUP: The BCS Child Nutrition Department continues to serve thousands of meals a day to our students and we will continue to offer meals to all students during the summer months. 
 
Breakfast and Lunch meal pickups Monday through Thursday, 11am to 1pm.

We can not open the cafeterias to 'eat in' locations yet due to state health guidelines/restrictions.  As soon as the additional student meal pickup locations are named, we will pass along that information to you.
 
P-EBT BENEFITS: In addition, all students will be receiving additional P-EBT benefits due to BCS' enrollment in the Community Eligibility Provision(CEP) program.. The EBT will be mailed to your household. (The CEP is a nutrition program under the National School Lunch Act)  
 

 

ACTUALIZACIÓN DEL RECOGIDO DE COMIDA PARA ESTUDIANTES: El Departamento de Nutrición de Niños de ECB continúa sirviendo miles de comidas al dia a nuestros estudiantes y continuará ofreciendo comidas a todos los estudiantes durante los meses de verano. Habrá algunos cambios comenzando el mes de Junio de los cuales queremos asegurarnos que usted esté al tanto.

 

Los Fondos de Emergencia que han hecho posible la entrega de comida por medio del  autobús escolar llegará a su fin en Mayo 31. Al final de Mayo el distrito cambiará a recogido en en las localidades solamente. Las tres escuelas secundarias continuarán ofreciendo desayuno y almuerzo para recoger de Lunes  jueves de 11am a 1pm. También se estarán añadiendo localidades de recogido adicionales en el distrito. Padres/Tutores simplemente necesitan indicarle al equipo de trabajo en las localidades cuantas comidas de estudiantes necesitan para ese dia.

 

Todavía no podemos abrir las cafeterias para comer en las localidades debido a restricciones/guías de salud estatal. Tan pronto como las nuevas localidades de recogido sean nombradas estaremos pasando la información.

 

Adicionalmente, todos los estudiantes estarán recibiendo beneficios P-EBT adicionales debido a la inscripción de ECB en el programa de Provisión de Elegibilidad Comunitaria (CEP). La tarjeta EBD será enviada a la cabecera del hogar. (El CEP es un programa de nutrición bajo el Acta Nacional de Almuerzo de Escuelas.)

 

 

Tendremos más detalles de las localidades adicionales de recogido de comidas para estudiantes tan pronto como estén disponibles. Como siempre, gracias por su continuo respaldo a ECB mientras “crecemos a través de esta era de adaptación juntos”

Nutrition is Priceless

Free Breakfast and Lunch For All Students!

The Child Nutrition Department is here to ease your mind about breakfast and lunch for your children. On a daily basis, we provide healthy and tasty "kid-approved" meals to students in Brunswick County Schools. Menus are planned to meet or exceed the requirements of the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010 and the USDA Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans with a focus on whole grains, fruits and vegetables.

 

Community Eligibility Provision

We are pleased to inform you that Brunswick County Schools will be implementing a new option available to schools participating in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs called the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for the current school year. 

What does this mean for you and your children attending Brunswick County Schools?

Great news for you and your students!  All enrolled students of Brunswick County Schools are eligible to receive a healthy breakfast and lunch at school at NO CHARGE!  No further action is required of you.  Your child(ren) will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit an application.  Additional snacks and entrees will be the only costs for students.

 

Our web page has a new look! You will be able to access just about everything you need with just one click. Access buttons are now located in the sidebar on the left. If there is something that you can't find here, please contact us!

JUST A LITTLE TIDBIT....

ID NUMBERS are assigned to all students when enrolling in school for the first time. This number will be used to identify your child throughout their school career. You may hear this number referred to as a "Power School" number or school ID number. This is the very same number we use in the school cafeteria to track a student's meals. Please assist your child in learning his or her number to help keep the cafeteria lines moving.

 

If you would like to check what your children are purchasing and add money to your child's account online, you can do so by setting up a K12 PaymentCenter Account.


Brunswick County Schools Child Nutrition Department offers services to students with special dietary needs. You can visit our Nutrition and Fitness page to read more about Special Meal Accommodations, food allergies and to download our Diet Order Updated 2-11-2020.pdf

If your children have transferred to another school district and or they have graduated and you would like to receive a refund for the their lunch account, you can visit our Pre-Payment Options page to download a Refund Request Form.
