Liberty County School System
Celebrates School Nutrition

The nation is giving students and parents an opportunity to show their appreciation for the men and women working in their school cafeterias during National School Nutrition Employee Week (May 5-9).

Preparing healthy meals, navigating students’ special dietary needs, and offering service with a smile are all in a day’s work for school nutrition professionals. From their friendly greetings in the cafeteria and the love they dish out with each healthy meal, to the ways they encourage kids to eat more fruits and vegetables-- school nutrition professionals are truly heroes.

School nutrition professionals must also be trained in food safety and sanitation and follow federal, state and local regulations to ensure school meals are safe and healthy. They must guarantee their programs meet all the requirements of the USDA, effectively implement complex regulations such as the HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Analysis), and at all times ensure the meals they serve provide one‐third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances of protein, Vitamin A, Vitamin C, iron and calcium, among other standards.

School nutrition professionals also use their creativity to make the cafeteria a fun and welcoming place all year long, and perform their jobs each day because they care about the children they serve. So next time you visit your child’s school cafeteria, be sure to thank the people working behind the counter!
