The Burr and Burton Free Meals Program provides students with access to a healthy breakfast and lunch. Students are able to purchase food at any of the three locations on campus. Students who are part of the Free Meals Program are eligible for 1 free breakfast meal and 1 free lunch meal each day. The program provides students with a daily stipend for each meal. Students receive up to $2.75 for breakfast and up to $5.00 for lunch/after school snack. The stipend resets for each meal and for each day. Students may not roll over any unused balance from breakfast to lunch or from one day to the next.
Students are eligible to buy any drinks that are priced at $1.25 or lower (water, small apple juice, or small milk) and any entree options. Burr and Burton provides a range of entree options each day, such as a build your own sandwich station, a large salad bar, a make your own burrito station, pizza, pasta, as well as daily specials/ bowls. Students may also buy smoothies with their daily stipend and a side at no cost with the purchase of any entree. Sides include a small salad with any offerings from the salad bar or a piece of fruit.
