Healthy Meals at No Charge

Community Eligibility Provision Continues in 2023-2024

The Colquitt County School Nutrition Department has participated in the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP) for Free Meal Reimbursement since beginning implementation in School Year 2015. Through CEP, a school district, a group of schools, or a single school may offer meals at no charge to all students. All Colquitt County School District schools will continue participating in this program for the SY23-24 school year. Colquitt County School Nutrition reduces administrative and printing costs by participating in CEP and eliminating the need for meal applications. Families also benefit from the elimination of completing and submitting meal applications. Children need healthy meals to learn. Colquitt County School District offers healthy meals every school day at no charge to your child(ren). Our food service receives support from the U.S. Department of Agriculture through the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs.

Offer Vs. Serve

Attention Parents & Students

Offer Vs. Serve is a USDA approved form of meal service established to help decrease plate waste and give more freedom of choice to students.  Colquitt County utilizes Offer Vs. Serve at all school sites.  All grades have the option of OVS at Breakfast and Lunch except Pre-K.  Pre-K receives all menu items: 4 at Breakfast and 5 at Lunch.

Manager SWAP

Colquitt County School Nutrition Managers participated in "Manager SWAP Day" on March 12, 2024.
SWAP - Sparking Workplace Appetities for Purpose
Each manager had the opportunity to get "a taste" of life at another school site.
This is a time to learn from one another and to offer encouragement to one another.
It proved, once again, to be a great experience for all involved.
