"The Mission of the School Nutrition Program is to be a partner in the educational process by providing quality meals at a reasonable price and nutrition education opportunities for students that promote healthy children, Ready to Learn. Through good nutrition and healthy habits, every child in Thomas County Schools will be challenged, prepared and successful."






Thomas County School Nutrition is excited to announce that Hand In Hand Primary, Garrison-Pilcher Elementary, and Cross Creek Elementary are proud recipients of the USDA Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program Grant.  

This grant allows for students to recieve a fresh fruit and/or vegetable for snack during the instructional school day.  The goal of the FFVP is to expand variety that children experience, increase consumption, and impact children's present and future health.
