One hundred percent of Catoosa County Public Schools’ cafeterias received a perfect 100 score on the health report for the second year in a row! Superintendent Denia Reese said, “I check the restaurant report card whenever I go out to eat. I am so proud that students, parents, and teachers will see a 100 and an A in all of our cafeterias.”


Catoosa County Public Schools serves 10,500 meals every day. Libby Cooke, Child Nutrition Coordinator said, “We serve a lot of meals every day, and we understand that we have a huge responsibility to maintain the highest standards to ensure student health.”


Achieving a perfect score in all kitchens for two years is a significant accomplishment. Ms. Cooke explained that it is a team effort. She said, “We work closely with our maintenance department and custodians to meet all the standards on the health report.”


ServSafe is a training program from the National Restaurant Association. All school cafeteria managers and assistant managers must be ServSafe certified, and every child nutrition employee participates in ServSafe training.


Superintendent Reese said, “We have set high standards for quality and training, but we only achieve success because every child nutrition employee is committed to maintaining the highest standard of quality. I appreciate their pride in their work and their love for our children.”
