About the Program:
Cobb County School District’s Food and Nutrition Department
works with our produce vendor to bring Georgia grown fruits
and vegetables to the students of Cobb County. Cobb schools
highlight Georgia Grown and locally grown fresh fruits and
vegetables in their cafeterias. The District serves fresh
fruits and vegetables daily that are from farms in Georgia
and the bordering states. While fresh fruits and vegetables
are available each day in the cafeterias, the Food and Nutrition
Department is excited about the opportunity to highlight Georgia
and locally grown products and their nutritional benefits. The
farm-to-school focus not only highlights the produce but also the
farm of origin. This program continues to support the department’s
vision of "Linking Nutrition to Life Long Learning."
