• SCHOOL YEAR 2022/2023
    We are so thrilled to be back in the kitchen and cooking for our students in school this year! Students in all of our schools will be able to enjoy meals in the cafeteria this year! Breakfast protocols are different at each school. Some schools serve breakfast in the classroom, others at kiosks, and still others through the cafeteria line. Every school is different and may not have the same protocol when compared to another school. If you have a specific concern or question about your student's meals or what is happening in that kitchen, you are encouraged to reach out to the kitchen manager at that school for more information. Due to GCPS participating in the CEP program, all meals are available at NO COST to students this year. That means FREE! While we are facing some set backs with supply chain disruptions and shortages, we still strive to provide students with a balanced, nutritious meal every single day. It's hard to learn when you're hungry, so we invite all students to participate in our daily school nutrition offerings. We look forward to serving you back in the cafeteria!

    Cucumbers are a crisp green vegetable that is a part of the gourd family! Cucumbers are generally eaten raw. This can be plain, with a dip such as ranch or hummus, in a salad, or even on a sandwich. Cucumbers are naturally high in water, low in calories, contain fiber, and are a good source of Vitamin A, Vitamin K, Vitamin C, and potassium. Grow your own or pick up some fresh ones at your local farmer's market or grocery store.
