What's Happening

SCHOOL YEAR 2023/2024

We are so thrilled to be back in the kitchen and cooking for our students in school this year! Students in all of our schools will be able to enjoy meals in the cafeteria this year! Breakfast protocols are different at each school. Some schools serve breakfast in the classroom, others at kiosks, and still others through the cafeteria line. Every school is different and may not have the same protocol when compared to another school. If you have a specific concern or question about your student's meals or what is happening in that kitchen, you are encouraged to reach out to the kitchen manager at that school for more information. Due to GCPS participating in the CEP program, all meals are available at no cost to students this year. That means FREE! While we are facing some set backs with supply chain disruptions and shortages, we still strive to provide students with a balanced, nutritious meal every single day. It's hard to learn when you're hungry, so we invite all students to participate in our daily school nutrition offerings. We look forward to serving you back in the cafeteria!

Virginia Harvest of the Month

Virginia Harvest of the Month is a program that is designed to increase awareness of and promote the preparation and consumption of local, seasonal fruits and vegetables. As a team, the GCPS' School Nutrition Department will do its best to incorporate each month's harvest onto the menu.

Cucumber Slices


Cucumbers are often referred to as a vegetable but are actually fruit! Cucumbers are most often eaten raw in a salad, a topping for wraps and sandwiches, as part of appetizers, or just as a snack either plain or with dipping sauce! Cucumbers are naturally low in calories, have a high water content, are an excellent source of fiber, and are nutrient rich! Eat cucumbers with the peel on to get the most nutrients out of this produce! Head to your local farmer's market or grocery store to get some fresh cucumbers.
