School Nutrition

  • The Clarke County School Nutrition Program is a partner in education, contributing to students' academic success by encouraging a lifetime of healthy eating through our breakfast & lunch meal programs. Our meals utilize a variety of locally-grown produce and foods.  Last year, we incorporated items that were grown and/or processed and shipped within Georgia.  Each year, we have successfully increased our Georgia Grown purchases, and we will continue to work towards meeting the Georgia Department of Agriculture's Vision 2020 goal.  We strive to incorporate these items into delicious and nutritious menu items prepared and served by caring, dedicated professional staff in a friendly environment. All of our school facilities provide meal service that meets the USDA dietary guidelines.

    Thank you for sharing your students with us each and every day. We love serving our Clarke County superstars!
