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.
