About the School Nutrition Team

We believe strongly in our mission to "Feed the Children" a student friendly, nutritious meal in a pleasant, safe, sanitary environment.

The School Nutrition Team has more than 150 full and part-time employees located at the Annex Building and within each of the schools. Each school kitchen has its own unique identity, but is still a part of the School Nutrition team and follows the same menu, standards, policies and procedures.

We are a self-funded department, using only federal funds, grants, and monies generated from the sale of school meals and catering to provide a nutritious, low cost school lunch and breakfast to Putnam County students. We operate much like a food service business with established annual goals and strategic plans. We pride ourselves on food safety, and each of our managers have attended nationally recognized food safety and nutrition trainings. We hope to encourage all staff to pursue further School Nutrition related training.

The Putnam County School Nutrition Team offers breakfast, lunch, summer feeding, and after-school snacks programs to Putnam County students. We serve approximately 670,000 student breakfasts and 1.2 million lunches annually, with over 70% of meals being available to students at no cost.
