SAVANNAH, Ga. (WSAV) — For September, WSAV is not only highlighting some food inspection scores for last month at eating and drinking establishments, but we have also included schools.
Schools have been feeding children since the National School Lunch Act of 1946 which was signed by President Harry Truman. It was designed to offer students nutritious meals that would aid them in growing and learning. Today, American schools serve more meals than most restaurant chains. On a typical school day, millions of children in the U.S. eat lunches that are offered by their schools. So, while it is important to pay close attention to academic standards, it is a good idea to be attentive to food safety practices.
