The Office of Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) continues to research new opportunities to feed students of Brevard County. The Florida Department of Health (FDOH), Bureau of Child Care Food Programs (CCFP) recently announced that the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) has approved a streamlined process for school districts interested in offering additional meals and snacks through the CCFP.
