Glynn County Schools’ Nutrition Department has earned the Most Creative Award for its 2020 Pandemic Feeding Program through the Georgia Peanut Commission’s “Not All Superheroes Wear Capes” Contest.
The school system served 12,000 meals per week during the pandemic last year using drive through meal distribution. As well as meeting the physical needs of students, the nutrition staff recognized there were emotional needs as well and focused on creating a fun and positive environment at the drive-throughs. Staff dressed in fruit and vegetable and superhero costumes and served more than 830,000 meals. The department received a trophy, 123 cases of peanut butter to distribute among the system’s 16 schools, hundreds of bags of peanuts and dozens of Georgia Peanuts spatulas.
