Success Stories
MENU Module has several success factors:
  • It provide CEs state-wide with nutritional analysis software to reduce time spent calculating nutritional values.
  • It creates a state-wide system capable of sharing menus and menu cycles between CEs.
  • It increases student and parent engagement with an online, mobile app capable of viewing menus and collecting feedback. (School Café.)
  • It streamlines the Administrative Review process.

The motivation behind implementing MENU Module is simple:  To ensure that ALL CEs have access to, and are empowered to use, MENU Module.

Every district, and sometimes sites within districts, handle day-to-day food production differently. But all districts must spend the time to calculate the nutritional value of each menu. If those time consuming calculations were automatically handled, what could you accomplish with those extra hours?
