The FCS School Nutrition Program’s food safety and sanitation procedures exceed Georgia Food Code requirements, and are in place to ensure safe meals are served at all times in all schools.  Here is an inside look at the FCS School Nutrition food safety measures:

ServSafe Certification - ServSafe is a Food Service Sanitation Course developed by the National Restaurant Association Educational Foundation to provide certification required to serve safe food.

  • 100% of Fulton County School Nutrition Managers have current ServSafe certification.
  • Over 80% of all Fulton County schools have one food service employee who is ServSafe certified in addition to the manager.
  • Certifications are renewed every 5 years by retaking the ServSafe course and examination.

Additional Food Safety Training

  • All foodservice employees receive food safety training at least twice a year in basic food safety, personal hygiene, cross-contamination, time & temperature control, and cleaning & sanitation.
  • All new foodservice hires receive food safety training within the first 24 hours of hire as required by United States Department of Agriculture (USDA).
  • In addition to being ServSafe certified, all managers receive additional food safety training monthly.

Ensuring Safe Foods are Served at All Times - As required by USDA and the Fulton County Health Department, all Fulton County School Nutrition Managers must implement a systematic approach to the identification, evaluation and control of food safety hazards to prevent food borne illness under a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) program.

  • All School Nutrition Programs are required to implement local standard operating procedures for monitoring personal hygiene, pest control and facility cleanliness in addition to requirements set by the Fulton County Health Department.
  • All School Nutrition Programs are inspected by School Nutrition Area Supervisors on an on-going basis.
  • All School Nutrition Programs are inspected by Fulton County Health Department twice a school year.  Inspection reports are posted in the cafeteria and online at www.fcsnutrition.com
  • All food vendors providing food items to Fulton County School Nutrition must also utilize proper HACCP compliance procedures.

This January, we are excited to announce the new Huddle Up & Win promotion offered in the cafeteria at all schools.  The promotion will countdown to The Super Bowl and encourages students to eat delicious, nutritious school lunch.  Each lunch is well balanced and was created with growing students in mind to provide a great source of energy throughout the day.  Students have a chance to win a prize from January 13th – 31st simply by eating a school lunch!  The Elementary school prize is a voucher for 2 tickets to The Children’s Museum of Atlanta, and the Middle and High School prize is a $25 gift card to Sports Authority.
