    Posted by Bridgette Matthews on 9/21/2018

    As a partner in education, the Elbert County School Nutrition Program is committed to the success and well-being of our students by providing delicious, safe, nutritious and affordable food to our students everyday with a smile. Our program strives to support local farming by providing Georgia-grown foods daily!  We are the largest food service operation in the county, serving almost 2000 for breakfast and 2500 for lunch every school day. All meals meet the requirements of the USDA and the School Nutrition Division of the Georgia Department of Education. These requirements regulate nutritional quality and quantity of all foods served in our cafeterias. Come out and enjoy a great meal with us!
