WELCOME TO CHILD NUTRITION IN CLARKE COUNTY
The goal of all Child Nutrition Programs (CNP) is to administer several programs that provide healthy food to children including the National School Lunch Program, the School Breakfast Program and the Summer Food Service Program. Each of these programs helps fight hunger and obesity by providing healthy meals to children. The Clarke County Board of Education is committed to providing school environments that promote and protect children's health, well-being, and ability to learn by supporting healthy eating and physical activity.
Our CNP Mangers are well-trained in food safety and look forward to serving our students on a daily basis. This school year, we are continuing our participation in the Community Eligibility Program so that none of our students are charged for their meals. Please see the Community Eligibility link to the left for more information. We will also continue to serve Breakfast in the Classroom. We greatly appreciate your child's participation in the school lunch and breakfast programs; it is a pleasure to serve them.
