Welcome to
Brookline Food Services


Dear Families,

Welcome back to Brookline School Food Services.

We are excited that most of our students will be returning to cafeteria dining this year. Our food service team is excited to welcome students back to an exciting menu.

With students returning to cafeteria dining:

  • There will be no need to preorder unless otherwise directed to order by your child’s school.

  • Students with ALLERGIES participating are encouraged to preorder. 
  • Students can go through the lines and select from an array of items from our menu including lots of fresh fruits and vegetables of their choice.

  • Transition to reusable trays and utensils

  • Composting in all schools

  • All students eat for FREE! NO sign up necessary!

We make 'School Meal' one less thing to worry about this school year!

The District has changed to a new payment system, Titan School Solutions. Although the USDA has extended free breakfast and lunch to all students through June 2022, parents need to set up an account in order to receive a refund.

Free school meals available to all students


As you may be aware, breakfasts and lunches are free for all Brookline Public School students, aged 0-21, through June 30, 2022.

But you may not know that from July 1, 2020 through June 1, 2021, the Food Service department has served 218,700 breakfasts and 359,833 lunches. This brought in a significant amount of federal dollars in the district money. Not only does this service save families time and money, but when your children eat school meals, it provides federal funds to the district.

Funding for Initiatives

This additional funding is being used to help the department attain its sustainability goals, including the following initiatives:

  • Transition from using disposable supplies to purchasing reusable trays and utensils
  • Assist with purchasing some dishwashing machines in schools, to be able to sanitize reusable trays, utensils and dinnerware
  • Invest in farm-to-school initiatives to help the department grow its own food as well as provide nutrition education to students
  • Invest in purchasing locally-grown organic foods for the program, while helping to reduce the department's carbon footprint
  • Help to offset over $338,000 current outstanding balances of student food service accounts, helping to ensure ALL students have access to quality food, regardless of ability to pay
  • Build a sustainable business model, ensuring that the program is self-sustaining financially

How you can participate

You still have time to help maximize the amount of federal dollars the program receives! Just have your kids participate by eating a school breakfast and lunch the days they are in school. 

Already participating? Please continue to do so. We hope this initiative is helping you to save time and money, while offering your children nutritious meals.
