Outdated school kitchens are quite common today. Aging buildings as well as new cooking processes necessitated by the changes in the federal nutritional guidelines for school nutrition programs have many food service professionals working in less than ideal conditions.
Keeping scholars with food allergies safe is as much about offering an allergen-free menu as it is about food handling, cleaning and preparation processes.
CKC Good Food’s “allergen-free” menu was created to offer scholars with food allergies delicious options at mealtimes. This menu is free of the most-common allergens – dairy, gluten, soy, eggs, fish/shellfish, tree nuts and peanuts – and full of flavor. We have offered this menu for several years and are happy to report we’ve been incident-free to-date.

Share tables are an excellent way for child nutrition programs to reduce food waste and help hungry kids get their fill. For those times when students’ eyes are bigger than their stomachs, they can place select foods they don’t want on the share table for other students/program participants to eat. Share tables are permitted by the USDA, according to specific guidelines.
