AUGUSTA – The Richmond County Board of Education ensures that students who require meals this summer will receive them.
By offering meals five days a week over the summer, the Richmond County School System ensures that its children and local residents never have to worry about where their next meal will come from.
“They said it’s in the millions that students are hungry during the summer and if we can fight that fight just a little, I mean, we’re doing something right,” Tamekia Williams-Cabarrus, a school nutritionist for Richmond County, stated.
More than 20 million students in the United States go without food throughout the summer, claims the organization “Feeding America.”
“Today is the tomorrow that you worried about yesterday,” stated Williams-Cabarrus.

“Wherever they are, within Richmond County, we want to be able to provide a service for them that will benefit them, and obviously enrich their lives– which we know food and nutrition does for any and everyone,” Dr. Bing stated.
Serving meals to students at Richmond County Schools involves more than just putting food on a plate.
“This job would not be everybody’s ideal job, but it means something. We are like pillars of the community because we’re out here serving your children to eat,” Williams-Cabarrus stated.
