  • Access to healthy meals plays a big part in your child’s growth, lifelong health, and potential for success. School Nutrition is an important part of every school, serving breakfast and lunch daily. We serve students healthy and appetizing meals offered in a clean and friendly dining environment.


    The Brandywine School District is the only district in the state of Delaware serving meals free from artificial colors, artificial flavors, and chemical preservatives.  We offer vegetarian and plant-based meals daily.

    We are a place for learning too.  Nutrition education activities in the classrooms and the dining rooms help kids learn about how to make healthy food choices, lessons that last a lifetime.

To Apply for Free/Reduced-Price Meals

  • Because COVID-19 USDA waivers have been extended, all students will receive free breakfast and lunch meals during School Year 2021-2022. Meal benefit forms may be completed to possibly qualify for other state programs, but are not required to receive free meals at school.
