Food at Burr and Burton

Healthy Body, Healthy Mind - Real Food For All

The Rowland Center is the home to BBA’s Student Center which is the hub for food service and is an inviting space for students to gather. 

Burr and Burton Academy’s Food Program mission of Healthy body, Healthy mind, Real food for all is outlined in three core values. The food served at BBA will be real, nutrient-dense, and use ingredients that are procured in a socially responsible way.

Additionally, we serve sandwiches and wraps from the Lower Cafe, which is located in the lobby of the athletics building.
