Clayton County Public Schools (CCPS) Nutrition
Services Department and the Department of Transportation are teaming up to reduce hunger and provide nutritious meals to all students as the district begins the 2020-2021 school year virtually. Beginning Monday, August 10, 2020, CCPS and Utopian Academy students will be able to visit bus stops closest to their homes to pick up breakfast and lunch meals Monday through Friday.  Students may also visit their nearest school to pick up meals on Monday through Friday curbside from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. Please note that parents/guardians may pick up meals on behalf of the students, however, Student ID numbers may be required to identify students. 

As the district continues to provide meal services to students, Clayton County Public Schools asks that all stakeholders view the following video ( designed to inform individuals of the proper way to social distance during meal pick up. Featuring Ms. Audrey Hamilton, CCPS Director of School Nutrition, the video also showcases members of the school nutrition staff and the work they do to prepare meals for students. In addition, it is asked that all stakeholders join the district in highlighting and promoting the efforts of the School Nutrition Department and various other departments to keep the community informed as we work together to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.
