Thank you to the entire Child Nutrition staff at Jefferson County Schools! Our cooks, cafeteria managers, and secretaries have continued to provide tasty, nutritious meals to students during unprecedented circumstances brought on by a global pandemic. Despite staffing shortages and supply chain issues, they served students more than 155,000 meals in October alone. They have not only continued to build good habits in our elementary school students with balanced meals for breakfast and lunch, but are also reducing food waste and helping middle and high school students make good choices by allowing them to make individual decisions on which menu items they choose, including the salad bar.
