Caroline County School Nutrition Department Wins VSBA Award

Caroline County Public Schools is happy to announce that the Caroline School Nutrition Program was selected as an award winner in the seventh annual Food for Thought Competition, a competition between Virginia’s school divisions to showcase their programs that combat childhood hunger, provide healthy school meals, and encourage wellness and physical activity.

The Division was selected for their entry in the Healthy School Meals category. The entry highlighted the new digital menu/messaging system which was implemented this year.

“The new Digital Menu / Messaging System was developed in conjunction with our IT department and our partners at NutriSlice – with feedback from our customers – the students”, stated Keith Conner, who oversees the Division’s School Nutrition Program. He further stated “the Department had previously worked with NutriSlice to offer a mobile app for parents, staff and students which provided them easy to access nutritional details about our menu. With the success of that roll out we decided to expand our efforts with an additional focus on the nutritional education side. The electronic menu display boards allow us to present nutritional information, interesting fun facts, as well as the daily menu, in a format well received by the students”.

For more information about this and other exciting programs being rolled out in Caroline, please visit the CCPS website.
