What’s for Lunch?
Does your school district want to serve ingredient-driven, scratch-cooked meals, engage students in food literacy, and nutrition education, and promote life-long wellness, but struggle to implement change due to fluctuating student lunch participation, budget, and facility constraints, or lack of trained staff? Your district is not alone.
Since March 2020, school food service teams have stretched and broken new ground they never dreamed they’d have to do. Despite the loss of Universal meals in most states and the continued challenges with the supply chain and staffing, food service teams continue to be at the front lines for children’s health and wellbeing in our communities.
Lunch Lessons understands these struggles and the challenges school districts are facing. With our years of on-the-ground operational experience, coupled with detailed knowledge of school food service operations, we can help your district innovate its food service system through strategic analysis. It is possible to identify new goals and achieve them.
Systemic Approach to Your School Food Transition
Lunch Lessons offers a whole system approach to “food services,” utilizing the complex interdependent network of finance, procurement, transport, food production, human resources, meal service, and record-keeping – while operating within a federally regulated environment with limited financial resources. We identify strengths and challenges within the existing system to craft strategies to meet the goals of the school district and community.
