We endeavor to support learning experiences by providing healthy meals and promoting healthy habits to encourage lifelong nutrition goals.
Talladega County Schools currently has 13 Child Nutrition Program Managers and 97 school nutrition professionals, serving breakfast and lunch on a daily basis in each of our 18 schools in Talladega County. Additionally, Talladega County Schools Child Nutrition Programs supply food service to several day care and head start centers. The meals provided in Talladega County Schools meet the Recommended Daily Allowance established by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
Talladega County Schools Child Nutrition Program is an active participant in the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. These are federally assisted programs sponsored by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that provide free or reduced price meals to the students whose families meet the criteria.
Talladega County Schools Child Nutrition Programs consider food safety a huge priority. The majority of school nutrition employees are ServSafe trained to make sure that all HACCP procedures are followed. Talladega County Health Department also conducts two inspections each year at each school nutrition site.
As a partner in students’ education in Talladega County Schools, Talladega County Schools Child Nutrition Programs contribute to a successful academic experience and encourage a lifetime of healthy eating by providing each student with an affordable opportunity to enjoy nutritious, appealing meals served by caring professionals in a pleasant environment.
We look forward to serving your children and invite you to visit your child’s cafeteria during the school year.
