• With more than 150 full and part-time employees located in their main office and in each school, School Nutrition believes strongly in the mission to Feed the Children a student-friendly, nutritious meal in a pleasant, safe, sanitary environment.

    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 for 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 has attended nationally recognized food safety and nutrition training.
