Students attending the Kingdom Afterschool Program at Burke Town School are being served a free "expanded snack" through the sponsorship of the U. S. Department of Agriculture funded Child and Adult Care Food Program. Students are served from a daily snack menu which includes food from five food groups rather than two food groups as in previous years.
The additional food provides students a more nutritious snack to fuel them through their afternoon activities such as homework, sports, and afterschool clubs. Burke joins Lyndon Town After The Bell and Newark Afterschool program in offering the larger snack to K-8 grade students. The snacks at all three schools are prepared by the school's food service provider, The Abbey Group.
Snacks are available at no separate charge to enrolled students and provided without regard to race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
