Feed My School helps bridge the gaps in the nutritional value and quality of food served in Georgia schools, while providing more farm to cafeteria opportunities. The result is healthier students, decreased barriers in farm to cafeteria opportunities and increased awareness as students learn and experience, both educationally and nutritionally, where their food comes from. The program's ground work serves as a major learning tool to better equip the distribution chain to provide local foods throughout Georgia. Topics including food safety, freezing, cold storage, pricing, packaging, distribution and others will continue to be addressed with participating school districts around the state as Georgia's farm to school program continues to grow and expand.
Mission of “Feed My School:” The Feed My School initiative increases the nutritional value and quality of food in Georgia schools and bridges the communication gaps from the farm to the cafeteria, resulting in healthier Georgia children. As the mission continues to expand and reach every school across the state, there will be decreased barriers in the farm to school efforts and increased awareness as students learn and experience, both educationally and nutritionally, where their food comes from.
