CALLAHAN, Fla. -- Students and parents had a taste of what will be served in school cafeterias this fall.
Nassau County hosted its first school menu showcase.
It allowed guests to sample more than 100 items that will be on the school menu this fall.
"Our parents can rest assured and have tasted for themselves now, that their children are offered a wide variety of menu items that taste good and are nutritious," said Allyn Graves, director of school food services for Nassau County School District. "It is proven that when students have a healthy breakfast and lunch they perform better academically. We want to make sure our students are taking advantage of one of the best tools we offer them to succeed -- school meals," said Graves.
Nassau County schools serves more than 1.6 million meals and snacks each year. Much of the food is made from local farms within a 150-mile radius of the district's schools.
