Food Service

The Big Rapids Public Schools Food Service staff would like to thank you for showing interest in our food service program!  Our students are very important to us, we strive to make their mealtimes fun and nutritious.  


Breakfast is FREE and available to all students.

Brookside Elementary serves breakfast in the classroom at the start of the day.  Our remaining BRPS schools serve breakfast 15-20 minutes before school starts in the school cafeteria. 

The National School Lunch Program Seamless Summer option will allow students a FREE LUNCH again this school year!

Remember to complete your Free and Reduced Application!  These applications will not impact the price of your student's lunch this year, however, they do impact other services for all students that are very important to our schools.
