Child Nutrition Program
Welcome to Cherokee County Schools Child Nutrition Program
The goal of the Cherokee County Schools Child Nutrition Program (CNP) is to provide nutritious breakfasts and lunches to all students by fulfilling the nutritional requirements of students as provided by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). We are committed to providing a variety of healthy food choices that are enjoyed by both students and staff.
Just as great care is taken in providing meal choices that offer nutritional balance, food safety practices are an integral part of Cherokee County’s school nutrition program. All of our lunchroom managers and assistant managers are ServSafe Certified by the National Restaurant Association.
Cherokee County Menus are compliant with the Healthy, Hunger-free
Kids Act of 2010.
