Southside tapped for nutrition program

CAIRO — Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black and State School Superintendent Dr. John Barge on Friday announced that Southside Elementary is one of the five schools selected across the state to participate in the second “Feed My School for a Week” program sponsored by the Georgia Department of Agriculture and the Georgia Department of Education.

 The “Feed My School” program increases awareness about the importance of proper nutrition and healthy eating, while assisting schools in sourcing local produce and products.

“The pilot program of ‘Feed My School’ was such a great success that we were encouraged to expand the program to five schools across the state,” said Black. “With this program, students will discover the importance of agriculture through learning about the process that brings local produce and goods from an area farm to the cafeteria table while at the same time receiving a healthy, delicious meal.”
