School Nutrition

Welcome to BPS School Nutrition Department

At Billerica Public Schools we know that good nutrition AND learning go hand in hand.

The Billerica Schools Nutrition Services program provides students with wholesome, nutritious and delicious meals that meet the USDA dietary guidelines for all Americans. Breakfast, lunch and healthy snacks are offered in each café. Menus are emailed home monthly and posted online along with nutritional and other valuable information. Students are offered 5 components at lunch: grains, meat or a meat alternate (protein), fruits, vegetables and milk. As required by the USDA, students must take at least 3 components as part of their lunch and one of those components must be a fruit or vegetable. Students are encouraged to take all 5 components. (For breakfast, students must take 3 food items.)
