Miami-Dade County Public Schools Announces Additional Sites to Participate In the Afterschool Meals Program

Miami-Dade County Public Schools currently provides the Afterschool Meals Program, a sub-component of the Child Care Food Program under the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in over 200 schools and announces the implementation of additional locations starting November 1, 2017 at Dr. Toni Bilbao Preparatory Academy (8905 NW 114th Avenue, Doral, Florida 33178) and Howard D. McMillan Middle School (13100 SW 59th Street, Miami, Florida 33183).


The program is designed primarily to provide nutritious meals to children in afterschool programs throughout the school District during weekdays and selected dates on Saturday. Starting on November 1, 2017 an after school meal is available at no separate charge regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability to the children enrolled in the after school care program at Dr. Toni Bilbao Preparatory Academy and Howard D. McMillan Middle School.  For specific details, please contact each school directly.
