Feed My School is a collaboration between the Georgia Department of Agriculture and School Nutrition. Richmond County Nutrition Services was selected to be one of the counties participating in the state. Last academic year this event was held at Hains Elementary School.
This year Feed My School will be held at Monte Sano Elementary from October 2-5th (Friday the 6th is a student holiday). School Nutrition provides a completely different lunch menu for this school compared to the rest of the county for this week. 80-100% of the products are Georgia Grown or locally grown/raised for lunch.
The purpose is to introduce agriculture education and exposure to the students all week in the classroom and especially in the cafeteria.
