Recipes

Our Lunch Box recipe format is designed to be user-friendly for schools; providing CN equivalents for elementary and secondary serving sizes, and allowing the user to scale either by elementary portion or secondary. The ingredient fields show pre-prepped and prepped measurement in both weight and volume to allow schools without scales to be able to interpret the correct amounts needed. Additional features are pan and serving utensil types and sizes and the amount of finished product per pan. A comment form is provided on the recipe page for users to share their experience with the recipe. In the future we will provide guidelines for recipe submission so The Lunch Box can continue to grow the Recipe “Box” and share great work from schools across the country.
