M-DCPS Announces Four More Schools Participating in 2019-2020 ‘Afterschool Meals Program’

Miami-Dade County Public Schools (M-DCPS) currently provides the “Afterschool Meals Program,” a sub-component of the Child Care Food Program under the U.S. Department of Agriculture, in more than 200 schools. M-DCPS announces the implementation of four additional locations starting September 3, 2019 at Frank C. Martin K-8 (14150 Boggs Drive, Richmond Heights, FL  33176), John I. Smith K-8 (10415 N.W. 52nd Street, Miami, FL 33178), Kendall Square K-8 (9325 S.W. 169th Place, Miami, FL 33196) and Miami Jackson Senior High (1751 N.W. 36th Street, Miami, FL 33142).

The after-school meals program ensures that students participating in regularly scheduled after-school educational or enrichment activity programs or Saturday Academy receive the nutrition they need to learn and grow. After-school and Saturday meals meet all USDA requirements and include fresh fruits and vegetables. The after-school meals and Saturday meals are 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 or Saturday Academy at the site mentioned above. For specific details, please contact each school directly.

New after-school educational or enrichment programs and Saturday Academies that start anytime during the 2019-2020 school year may request after-school meals for students enrolled in their program by contacting the M-DCPS Department of Food and Nutrition.
