Marietta City Schools has been selected as a 2018 Gold Level Golden Radish Award recipient! The Golden Radish Award salutes Georgia school districts for best practices in farm to school programs, such as local food procurement, exposing students to new foods through taste tests and incorporating gardening and cooking activities into the curriculum. In its third year being recognized, the MCS Nutrition Department is proud to receive the gold level award for the first time. The nutrition department was recognized at the November 2018 Board of Education meeting.
MCS Nutrition Director, Cindy Culver believes the creativity and hard work of her team made the difference this year. “From school gardens to partnering with groups such as Atlanta United, they’ve gone above and beyond to introduce our students, parents, and teachers to the benefits of healthy eating.” Check out this video from Park Street Elementary and find out why our MCS Nutrition Department is #SpecialDifferentBetter.
