The Lamar County School Nutrition Program is dedicated to promoting the health and well-being of our children by providing healthy, nutritious meals prepared in sanitary facilities and served in a pleasant atmosphere.

The Lamar County School Nutrition Program takes pride in being a highly trained, dedicated, professional team whose mission is to assist in educating the students to make healthier food choices for life.  We will accomplish our mission by utilizing advances in technology and providing quality nutritious food choices in a nurturing, caring, clean environment while working with students, teachers, staff and parents.

Our team of food service professionals work diligently every day to provide nutritious assistance programs, including the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), meet individuals’ food and nutrition needs.  USDA Foods represent 15-20% of all food served in school meals and our specifications for these foods meet or exceed standards set for commercial products.

It is our objective to provide attractive, well-balanced meals with prompt and courteous service.  Our food service team works hard daily to provide the best for our students.  We look forward to serving your child!

Just some facts:

We served 320,040 student lunches in school year 2016-2017 – that averages out to 1,778 per day.  Our breakfast counts were 159,842 or 880 average per day.

The SNP is self-supporting.  No financial support is currently received from local tax dollars to support our program.  The majority of funds received are from our customers (students and adults) that eat with us and reimbursement from the Federal Government. 

All SNP employees take required sanitation training and our Kitchen Managers are ServSafe® certified.  We are also HACCP and OSHA compliant.

The SNP incorporates fresh produce into the school menus every day.  Fresh fruits and vegetables are offered at every meal.  We use local Georgia Grown as frequently as available.
