Hinesville mayor signs proclamation at Button Gwinnett

LIBERTY CO., GA (WTOC) -

Button Gwinnett Elementary School celebrated National School Lunch week with a proclamation from Hinesville Mayor James Thomas.

Liberty County schools served up 157,000 lunches to their 10,000 students during the month of September.

School Nutrition Director Dr. Linda Holland tells WTOC they see a connection between students getting a nutritious breakfast and lunch and their performance in the classroom. In addition, absences, tardies, discipline problems and even visits to the school nurse go down.
