Georgia Tray of the Week
The Georgia Tray of the Week Campaign is to be a year-long school meal promotional activity that highlights the consistently high quality of school meals served in Georgia schools. Each Tuesday the State Agency will select and share, via social media, five or more photos depicting Georgia school meal trays served in the preceding school week. Social media followers will be asked to select their favorite menu from the shortlisted trays, with the image having the most engagement by each Friday at 8:00am being designated the Georgia Tray of the Week.
