Meals Plus offers more than a complete technology suite for your child nutrition department backed by the best technical support around. We also offer free downloads that help make every aspect of managing your department easier! Since our first white paper, “Not All Doom and Legume: Your Survival Guide to the USDA Meal Pattern Requirements,” was published in 2012, we have explored how to examine the financial health of your child nutrition department, best practices for managing your inventory, and tips to speed up your cafeteria lunchlines. And our next download offers a close look at how to market your program to parents and students and increase participation.
The new white paper examines the “Five P’s” of promoting your program: Product, Placement, Promotion, Price and People, and will be available for download this winter. And like some of our other white papers, it was written by Cynthia Sevier, SNS, former Child Nutrition Director of Guilford County Schools (NC), who has over 30 years of experience in school food service. She is currently the Child Nutrition Operations Consultant for Meals Plus, traveling the country helping schools with personnel training, pre-CRE reviews, menu preparation assistance and more.
