“[My favorite part of Meals plus is] the centralized server that we are using through Meals Plus. I now have the capability to view transactions from my desk. When free and reduced applications are completed and updated the information is immediately posted to the schools.” – Robin Taylor, Child Nutrition Director at Elizabeth City-Pasquotank Schools, NC

Explore all of our School Cafeteria Management Modules!

Because we understand that individual schools have different needs, the Meals Plus Enterprise System is divided into separate modules. Whether you’re a current customer that would like to consider adding additional modules or new to Meals Plus and researching other cafeteria software systems available for your district, our free online product demonstrations show you how we can help streamline your operations.

Each month, our Product Demonstration Calendar is published on our school cafeteria software website with links to register directly for the free webinars. Times and topics vary by date in order to help you accommodate a webinar into your workday. Registration confirmation will be sent via email, as well as reminder emails. Sign up for one, two or all of the demonstrations – there is no limit!

Want to attend a webinar but the scheduled time doesn’t work for you? Email us at sales@mealsplus.com for this and any other questions you may have and we will make arrangements for a demo at a more convenient time for you. To see this month’s Product Demonstration Calendar, click here.
