Facts:

Why is breakfast so important?
Eating breakfast at school is one of the smartest ways your child can begin the day. Often students simply don't have enough time in the morning to eat breakfast at home and go to class without eating anything at all. A hungry child just cannot concentrate on learning. Research proves breakfast is the most important meal of the day. It breaks the fasting of our bodies while we sleep and gives us fuel for starting a new day. In most studies, children who eat breakfast improved their grades. Teachers observed increased attentiveness, motivation, self- discipline and concentration in students who participate in the School Breakfast program. Studies have found that children who ate breakfast make fewer mistakes and better grades. 
Also, skipping meals can start poor eating habits which may lead to a risk of obesity.
Why is lunch served at school? 
Every student needs lunch during the school day. Many students would receive no meal or a nutritionally poor meal if they had to bring their own lunch. Research has shown that hungry children cannot learn. A child with an empty stomach is lethargic, irritable and is not able to participate fully in learning experiences. Good nutrition is critical to student achievement.
What is Offer vs. Serve? 
Offer vs. Serve (OVS) allows students to decline a certain number of food items in the meal. The goal of OVS is to allow students the option of declining foods they do not intend to eat to minimize plate waste and encourage schools to offer more food choices.
What is in a breakfast meal? 
A reimbursable breakfast consists of an entrée (2 breads or 1 bread and 1 meat), 1 fruit or fruit juice and milk.
What is in a lunch? 
A reimbursable lunch meal consists of servings of grain, meat/meat alternate, fruit, vegetable and milk.
What is a meal component? 
A meal component is one of the five food groups (meat/meat alternate, grains, fruits, vegetables and milk) that make up a reimbursable meal.
What is the cost if a student takes fewer than 3 components? 
Students who take fewer than the required components will be charged a la carte prices for the individual items since the meal cannot be reimbursed on the National School Lunch Program or the National School Breakfast Program.
How should we handle cash payments? 
When paying with cash, put cash in a sealed envelope with your child's first and last name on it. Also, please write the teacher's name and grade on the outside of the envelope. Include the student's PIN number if known.
Can I pay for my child's meal using a credit card? 
Yes. Visit our online payment provider PayPams at www.paypams.com and create an account. You will then be able to add money to your student's account, schedule automatic payments, or get notification when the account balance is low.
Are your kitchens inspected? 
Yes. Each kitchen is inspected by the Georgia Department of Public Health twice a year. The results of these inspections are posted in each cafeteria as well as on our website.In addition, we comply with any food safety recall notices when they are issued.
