We’ll take one of those and one of those, and that looks good, too! The list of new menu items in Gwinnett cafeterias reads like the offerings for your favorite quick-serve and fast-casual restaurants… Café chicken minis on Parker House rolls, chopped salads, gourmet burgers, deep dish and French bread pizza, stuffed pasta shells, baked chicken wings, and lemongrass Thai bowls.
Each year, the district adds new dishes to the cafeteria line, reflecting student feedback from focus groups and some of the popular menu trends that families see when they eat out. From taste-alike chicken sandwiches and seasonal drinks to Georgia-grown fruits and vegetables, GCPS’ award-winning School Nutrition Program (SNP) provides tasty and nutritious meals to our students, staff, and visitors each day at economical prices.
And, unlike grocery stores and local eateries, the school district continues to hold the line on school meal prices again this year: $1.50 for breakfast ($.30 reduced price), $2.25 for ES lunch and $2.50 for MS and HS lunch ($.40 reduced price). Adult prices are $1.75 for breakfast and $3.00 for lunch.
