School Nutrition- Another Part of the Education Process
Johnson County Nutrition Program
Redessa Crawford, Director of School Nutrition Program

Mission Statement: As a partner in education, the Johnson County School Nutrition Program’s mission is to contribute to a successful academic experience and encourage a lifetime of healthy eating.
The program provides each student with nutrition education and meals that are nutritious, appealing, and served by caring professionals in a pleasant environment.
The School Nutrition Program provides a nutritious breakfast and lunch for school children each day at no cost to them. Feeding today’s youth has never been more challenging. The Johnson County School Nutrition Program is striving to meet this challenge by offering an assortment of food choices that meet the U.S.D.A. Dietary Guidelines for Healthy Americans. The School Nutrition Program serves breakfast, lunch, and snacks in both schools and satellites breakfast and lunch to the alternative school. As a county, we feed 94% of our students for lunch and 69% of the students eat breakfast at school. This is one of the highest averages in the state. The School Nutrition Program is administered by the United States Department of Agriculture and operates under federal (USDA) and state (Georgia Department of Education) rules and regulation, and policies set by the Johnson County Board of Education. We look forward to serving students, staff, and guest each school day in our cafeterias. We hope that everyone finds the meals to be enjoyable.

Our Vision
Provide the opportunity for all students to meet their daily, nutritional needs for meals consumed at school.
Provide healthy choices that comply with the Dietary Guidelines.
Be recognized by peers and the community as a leader in the school nutrition field.
Provide training for professional growth.
Provide nutrition education for all students.
Operate a financially sound program.
Maintain standards of sanitation set by the Health Department.
Be an integral part of the comprehensive school health program.
Support policies that ensure all foods available to students during the school day comply with the Dietary Guidelines.
Continually improve the effectiveness of food production and service to meet and exceed customer expectations.
