The Walton County School District Nutrition Program strives to provide nutritious, affordable and appealing meals. Meals are prepared in a food-safe environment and served in a manner that encourages students to participate in the School Nutrition Program.
School Nutrition employees follow menus and prepare meals according to standardized recipes to ensure that students receive meals that meet current USDA menu planning guidelines (found in the Health Hunger Free Kids Act of 2010). Our goal is that our students are ready to learn when they get to the classroom. Hungry children can't learn so we feel School Nutrition is a vital part of a child's education. School Nutrition employees are competent, friendly, and nurturing as they prepare and serve meals.
We are committed to improving childhood nutrition in all schools across the district, and leading the way with better nutrition. Menus are planned to ensure a balance between optimal nutrition and student acceptance.
Our staff of 130 employees serve approximately 10,757 meals each day to the students of Walton County. We are always looking for ways to reach new customers!
During the spring of 2020 when our schools closed suddenly, we were truly honored to support our families by providing 42,833 meals.
