The Taste of Café Gwinnett is an event showcasing the top items served in GCPS school cafes to the district support staff who work in the ISC and who have not had the opportunity to try the tasty and nutritious items served to students every day.

As part of this year’s event, which takes place during National School Lunch Week, United States Department of Agriculture officials and Georgia Department of Education leaders will attend, learning more about the work Gwinnett County Public Schools does in this area.
