CCSD School Nutrition Wins Two State “Best Practices” Awards

The Cherokee County School District’s School Nutrition program has won two State “Best Practices” Awards!

The program, which is led by Director Tina Farmer, has been named a Georgia USDA Best Practice Award winner in the categories of Farm to School Programs and Use of Social Marketing for School Nutrition Programs.

A diverse group of judges met to consider each entry, said Nancy Rice, State Director of School Nutrition for the Georgia Department of Education, with 54 Georgia USDA Best Practice Awards bestowed statewide.

“You are all to be commended for the wonderful work you are doing to enhance the Georgia and National School Nutrition programs for our children,” Ms. Rice said. “Congratulations!”

The program will be recognized by the Cherokee County School Board and Superintendent of Schools at the School Board’s meeting on June 15.

Cherokee County School District is again participating in the USDA Seamless Summer Option, which offers free meals to children during the summer.

The meals are available to youth 18 years of age or younger and runs June 5 to July 21, Monday through Friday (exceptions noted below); all meals must be consumed on site. The distribution sites and times are listed below.

Almost one-third of CCSD students qualify for free or reduced-price meals during the school year, and this program ensures that children continue to have access to nutritious meals throughout the summer break.

The program is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture; no CCSD funds are expended for this program.
