School Nutrition

  • The Clarke County School Nutrition Program is a partner in education, contributing to the academic success of students 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, which are 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!


  • MOBILE MEAL DISTRIBUTION

    After spring break, the district will stop supporting our mobile meal routes since most students have elected to return to in-person instruction.  Curbside locations will remain open in April & May.  Meal bundles can be picked up on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday between 11:00AM - 12:00PM at participating locations.

  • REOPENING UPDATE!

    Starting on March 22nd, we will shift our operations since most students will have returned to an in-person learning model.  Curbside sites will continue to be open on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday; however, we will shift mobile meal distribution to Wednesdays only.  Therefore, mobile meals will be delivered on Wednesday, Mar 24th and Wednesday, March 31st.

    Since ALL CCSD students are eligible to receive free meals, we want to provide as much access to our services as possible.  Here is a brief and concise summary.

    ELEMENTARY STUDENTS:

    • IN-PERSON LEARNERS will be able to participate in both breakfast and lunch while at school.  Breakfast will be made available at key locations for students to grab as they head to class.  Lunch will be served in the serving line area, and then, students will head to their designated dining locations to be determined by their school administrators. 
    • VIRTUAL LEARNERS will be able to pick up meals at a curbside location between 11:00AM - 12:00PM. 
    • *NEW* Curbside meal pick up will be available on Monday, Wednesday, & Friday.  We will continue to bundle meals together, so each time, you will receive two breakfasts & two lunches along with 'Heat @ Home' instructions for safely reheating school meals while at home.
    • Remember, on Wednesday, ALL students who are at home can pick up meals since they are not at school on Wednesdays.
    • SPECIAL NOTE: If your students are served by bus meal delivery, the buses will continue to deliver meals to your students who are learning from home.  Since most students have returned to in-person learning, buses will only run on Wednesday.  Meal bags will be bundled to provide two breakfasts and two lunches each day.  

    MIDDLE & HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:

    • IN-PERSON LEARNERS will be able to participate in breakfast and lunch while at school.
      • Since high school students are only on campus one day this week and next week, we will have meal bundles ready to pick up at dismissal.  These menu bundles will include meals for the other three days of instruction.
    • VIRTUAL LEARNERS are eligible to pick up meals at any elementary or middle school curbside location between 11:00AM - 12:00PM.  See our website for a list of curbside locations.
    • SPECIAL NOTE: If your students are served by bus meal delivery, the buses will continue to deliver meals to your students who are learning from home.  Since most students have returned to in-person learning, buses will only run on Wednesday.  Meal bags will be bundled to provide two breakfasts and two lunches each day.
