So it seems that a lot of you are very dissatisfied over what is served for school lunches.
I would like to know 1st off what are you doing about it? Are you talking to your congressman about the changes that should be made?
This is my challenge for you for the day.
There are 5 days in a week that is 2 main dishes a day for the school X 6 week rotating menu. The challenge is to come up with only the main item for those meals which is 60 items they have to meet the school nutrition guidelines.For meat/ meat alternate and grains.
You have to be able to fix for between 200-400 kids in the time frame of 1 1/2 hours and know that there are also other items that have to be prepared in that time frame as well. The full salad bar wlll also have to be prepared.
You can not use any items like homemade pizza dough that takes too much time to do. It has to be not raw meats.
Example 2 cases of grapes take about 45 minutes to clean and cut into bunches.
Any lunch ideas worthy of mention will be taken to the main Boss for consideration. I have told her all about your concerns she is wanting to know ideas.
