 The Augusta School Nutrition Program prepares nutritious breakfasts & lunches daily in all  of our schools. 
Our goal is to provide meals that meet the expectations of all our customers (students, parents, and educators). This is a challenge, one that we take seriously and work hard to achieve.  Communication is vital to our success. Should you at any time wish to share a comment, concern, or suggestion regarding our program, please do not hesitate to contact your school's Kitchen Manager or the School Nutrition Director's Office using the e-mail link at the top of this page or by calling 626-2468  Ext. #1141 or #1142.

 
 FFVP = FRESHFRUIT & VEGGIE PROGRAM
Elementary Schools with a high percentage of children eligible for free and reduced price meals may be eligible to participate in the "Fresh Fruit & Vegetable Program".   The FFVP provides a fresh fruit or vegetable "sample" for students to try during the school day.
Potential Benefits of the FFVP:
  • Expand the variety of fruits and vegetables children experience
  • Increase children’s fruit and vegetable consumption
  • Make a difference in children’s diets to impact their present and future health
  • This program is seen as an important catalyst for change in efforts to combat childhood obesity by helping children learn more healthful eating habits. The FFVP introduces school children to a variety of produce that they otherwise might not have had the opportunity to sample.
