Nutrition & Wellness Home > Parents > Nutrition & Wellness This institution is an equal opportunity provider and employer. Food Service As part of our caring community commitment, we serve a “family style” lunch in the classrooms. All students participate in the set up, serving, and clean up of the meal. Students who bring lunch from home are expected to participate, too. Teachers eat with the students, modeling appropriate manners and conversation. Students who qualify for free or reduced price lunch are enrolled in the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s school meal program. We encourage all families to apply and take advantage of this program. Students who do not qualify for the USDA program may purchase meals at school. GCCS partners with Julia K Caters to provide breakfast and lunch for GCCS students. Menus are made available at least one week prior to allow families to plan their budgets. Please advise the main office of any special diet needs or food allergies.
