> Florida School Breakfast and Lunch Program
The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs make nutritionally balanced, low-cost or free meals available to school children each school day. School breakfasts and lunches must meet the Dietary Guidelines for Americans and Federal nutrition standards. Some schools offer afterschool snacks to children in the school's afterschool care programs. The School Breakfast and Lunch Programs are currently administered by Florida Food and Nutrition Management and the Department of Education.
