Georgia Tray of the Week

​​​​The Georgia Tray of the Week Campaign is a school meal promotional activity that highlights the consistently high quality of school meals served in Georgia schools. Each Tuesday the State Agency selects and shares 4-6 photos via social media depicting Georgia school meal trays served in the preceding school week. Social media followers select their favorite menu from the shortlisted trays, and the image having the most engagement by each Friday at 8:00am is designated the Georgia Tray of the Week.

​​Win-Win with Great Promise Partnership

​Great Promise Partnership (GPP) is an initiative of the Georgia Department of Education (GaDOE) in the Career, Technical, and Agricultural Education Department (CTAE). GPP is the work-based learning placement for students in danger of not graduating, providing an educational opportunity that allows students to receive on-the-job training and life skills. Not only will this program help these students gain transferable skills while earning a much-needed paycheck, but it will also help with developing a workforce pipeline for your school nutrition program. ​Click here to read a letter from Dr. Dodson and detail about GPP.
