  Georgia Agriculture Commissioner Gary W. Black announced that five schools have been selected to participate in the third “Feed My School for a Week” Program.  One of those schools is in Evans County. 


  Black said Claxton Elementary School in Claxton will participate in the program designed to increase awareness about the importance of proper nutrition and healthy eating, while assisting schools in sourcing local produce and products. The program is sponsored by the Georgia Department of Agriculture.


  Other schools participating are Annie Bell Clark Elementary in Tifton, Cave Springs Elementary in Rome, Commerce Primary School in Commerce and Mossy Creek Elementary in Cleveland.


  Commissioner Black said “The pilot program of “Feed My School was such a great success that we were encouraged to expand the program to five schools across the state.”


  During a one-week period in the spring semester, all lunches served out of each selected school’s cafeteria will consist of 75-100 percent of Georgia Grown food. The schools will host an agriculture guest speakers and  “taste tests” for Georgia commodities, in addition to several other educational activities throughout the designated week.
