NEW! Pandemic EBTProgram
A new program for families with children who
received free or reduced-cost lunches at school
The Pandemic Electronic Benefits Transfer Program (P-EBT) provides temporary funding for families that need emergency food during the pandemic.
There is no need to fill out an application for eligible families who are already on the free and reduced program.
If you are not currently on the free and reduced lunch program and your income has changed, fill out an application at www.lunchapp.com to see if you qualify to receive P-EBT benefits.

Bridgman Schools knows why breakfast is so important. That is why we offer breakfast in all of our schools every day.
Breakfast is a great way to give the body the refueling it needs. Kids who eat breakfast tend to eat healthier overall and are more likely to participate in physical activities — two great ways to help maintain a healthy weight.
Skipping breakfast can make kids feel tired, restless, or irritable. In the morning, their bodies need to refuel for the day ahead after going without food for 8 to 12 hours during sleep. Their mood and energy can drop by midmorning if they don’t eat at least a small morning meal.
Breakfast also can help keep kids’ weight in check. Breakfast kick-starts the body’s metabolism, the process by which the body converts the fuel in food to energy. And when the metabolism gets moving, the body starts burning calories. If you qualify for free or reduced lunches, this applies to breakfast as well.
The elementary school garden is here, and the middle school garden is coming soon!
The Bridgman Food Service Department and Come and see Farm have partnered to create the district’s first school garden! The garden is located in the front of the Elementary School behind the playground.
