Child Nutrition

Children need healthy, nutritious food to sustain their bodies and minds throughout the school day. At George Gervin Prep Academy, we provide students with a breakfast and lunch each day that contains the necessary nutrients to keep them focused on their studies, rather than a growling stomach. 

GGPA Participates in the National School Lunch Program

As part of this program, GGPA will offer healthy meals every school day at no cost to the students due to the implementation of the community eligibility provision for the 2023–2024 school year. Students will be able to participate in these meal programs without having to pay a fee or submit a household application.

My family needs more help. Are there other programs we might apply for?

Build a Better Breakfast

Do you often hear “What’s for breakfast?” Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Without a nutritious breakfast, children don’t have the fuel they need to get to lunchtime. Even if you’re in a hurry, you can still provide a quick, healthy,on-the-go meal. Here are some ideas:

  • Yogurt with fruit and nuts
  • Fruit salad and cottage cheese
  • String cheese and a banana
  • Trail mix with nuts and dried fruit
