"Preparing Children to Learn" is the motto for the Brooks County Nutrition Program.
To master classroom learning and skills, students must have a healthy body and mind. School nutrition professionals consider this an important challenge. School cafeterias are "learning laboratories" where students find selections of healthy foods every day and where they are encouraged to develop habits that will lead to a lifetime of healthy eating. In the Brooks County Schools, the staff strives to provide the best quality foods along with the most nutritious food selections. Our program serves over 2200 lunches and 1500 breakfasts daily! The meals meet all the federal guidelines and are offered at a very low cost to the student.
