Menu Development

When we change from ready-to-heat foods to fresh foods in the context of menu planning, letting go of prior presumptions is important. Determining the amount of choices and how many per each age group are examples of menu planning challenges. Efficient, fiscally sustainable scratch-cooking programs are reducing choices in favor of fresh flavors.


Management is a general term for all of the areas we include here: fiscal, human resources, facilities, assessment, and wellness policies. In order for a district’s food service department to be successful, the director has to be adept in a vast array of subjects.


Procurement is one of the most complex processes that happen within our food service departments. In the event of shifting a program from using processed, ready-to-heat foods to scratch cooked recipes, many processes change.
