Why Schools Should Look at Outsourcing Their Lunch Program

Published On: September 19th, 2022Categories: Blog

Schools have always struggled with the issue of providing school lunches. Parents want lunches that are affordable and nutritious. Kids want lunches that are delicious and not boring. Add to that the dietary needs of different students and the ability to meet all these requirements can become quite overwhelming for a school. One solution is to outsource a lunch delivery program to a company like Dishes2U. Here’s why schools should look at outsourcing their lunch program.

Schools don’t have to manage a cafeteria or caterer

Ah, the school cafeteria….it brings back fond memories (or perhaps not so fond) for many adults. However, managing a school cafeteria is challenging, time-consuming, and expensive. From hiring help to manage to the cafeteria to designing school lunches that meet dietary requirements to ongoing cleaning demands, many schools find a cafeteria is no longer a viable option to provide lunches to their students.
