SCHOOL YEAR 2021/2022
We are so thrilled to be back in the kitchen and cooking for our students in school this year! Unfortunately, we are still feeling the effects of the ongoing COVID-19 Pandemic. Due to this, all students will be ordering their meals via an order system (either paper or electronic) and receiving their meals in the classroom. 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 your child 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 as soon as possible!
This year we will be celebrating the Thanksgiving Holiday with a special meal on Thursday, November 18th. Check your school's menu under "Menus" to the left of the webpage for meal details.
Virginia Harvest of the Month
Virginia Harvest of the Month is a program that is designed to increased awareness of and promote the preparation and consumption of local, seasonal fruits and vegetables. As a team, GCPS School Nutrition Department will do our best to incorporate each month's harvest onto the menu.

November's Harvest of the Month is:
Cabbage is a non-starchy vegetable that is usually green, but can be purple. It is often steamed, boiled, sauteed, stir-fried, used in soup, or to make coleslaw! However, it can also be pickled and eaten as sauerkraut or kimchi. Cabbage is closely related to broccoli, cauliflower, and Brussel sprouts. Cabbage is naturally low in fat and calories and packed with Vitamin K and Vitamin C among other vitamins and minerals. This month you will see steamed cabbage on all menus.
