Fulton County School Nutrition Chef Wins Local CHOPPED Competition
General Mills Foodservice hosted a local food show for Georgia school nutrition professionals in January.  Clarence Martin, Chef and School Nutrition Manager at Renaissance Elementary School, was selected as 1 of 4 representatives in the state to cook in the Chopped Competition in front of an audience of school nutrition associates.  Mr. Martin prepared two different recipes, meeting all USDA School Nutrition requirements.  A panel of judges evaluated creativity, taste and appearance, and selected Fulton’s own Clarence Martin as the winner!

February Farm to School
The Fulton County Farm to School program integrates fresh whole foods into school meals while educating children about lifelong benefits of healthy eating.  Check out the farm fresh zucchini served in all Fulton County cafeterias in February! Because it’s grown close to home it helps support our local farmers, and takes less fuel to get it to our cafeterias.  Not only is the farm fresh zucchini good for the environment, zucchini is also great for the body!  Zucchini contains vitamin C, manganese, potassium and vitamin B6. Manganese is an essential mineral that helps form bone. That’s one super-vegetable that you’ve got to try today!
100% of grains offered on the Fulton County School Nutrition menus are whole grain-rich!  Registered dietitians and school nutrition experts carefully research ingredients to ensure that all offered cereals, rice, breads, biscuits, rolls, pasta, pizza crust, and even the breading on the chicken nuggets and seafood is whole grain-rich!
