Brown is part of the DPS StartSmart no-charge breakfast program. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and also the most skipped meal by children. Children who eat breakfast perform better on standardized achievement tests and have fewer behavior problems in school. To support the daily education of DPS students Food & Nutrition Services offer a program of Breakfast at No Charge to all schools with a current breakfast program. Stop at the cafeteria before school, so your student can grab a snack or full breakfast.
Brown offers a hot cafeteria lunch including a kid-friendly salad bar. Brown International staff ensure that children quickly learn the routine of walking to the cafeteria and getting hot lunch or sitting down to eat their lunch from home.
You may pre-pay for multiple lunches via My School Bucks, or give cash or a check to the cafeteria staff. Remember to sign up online before the first day of school, or pay staff on the first day when you drop off your child. Your child will have a lunch card in the classroom that he or she will give to the cafeteria staff; the paraprofessional will return all lunch cards to the classroom. Children with free or reduced lunch will have a lunch card that works the same way.
**For the 2021-2022 school year, both breakfast and lunch are free for ALL students. Additionally, our students are eating outside as much as possible (weather permitting) due to COVID precautions.**
