Lunch Money

Lack of funds is most frequently cited as the primary roadblock for school food reform, but chances are great that there are thousands, and maybe millions, of dollars to be found within most districts’ existing school meals programs. Food service directors, district administrators, school board members and parents will all benefit from this timely and compelling workshop that answers the question of how to serve healthy school meals in a sick economy. 

Presented by Cook for America® co-founder Kate Adamick, the “Lunch Money” workshops reveal how district food service operations can increase revenue and cut expenses through restructuring commodities ordering practices, improving breakfast participation, and rediscovering the old adage, “A penny saved, is a penny earned.”
