AASA, The School Superintendents Association, announced today a new partnership with NutriStudents K-12 developed to help schools maintain internal control of their foodservice programs while reducing the administrative responsibilities placed on food service staff.

“The nutritional well-being of a child is a critically important factor for how that child learns,” said Daniel A. Domenech, executive director, AASA. “With billions of school lunches served over the course of a school year, we are pleased to partner with a foodservice program that is making a positive difference in school cafeterias across the country.”

NutriStudents K-12 helps school districts to:

  • Increase revenues by enticing more students to participate in meal programs with the delicious, chef-created, USDA-compliant breakfast, lunch and snack menus, as well as promotional tools to engage students, staff and parents.
  • Reduce food costs with simplified market baskets and precise commodity ordering with the Commodity Forecasting Tool.
  • Save staff time spent on menu creation, reporting, ordering and training with supplied reports for all menus, a Product Order Guide that automates distributor orders based on districts’ chosen menu weeks, and training resources on Offer vs. Serve, reimbursable meal requirements, serving procedures and food safety practices.

“We are extremely happy to be associated with AASA, the nation’s premier organization that represents the leadership of our public school districts,” said Nancy Close, CEO and co-founder, NutriStudents K-12. “As foodservice directors continue to struggle to offer menus that comply with USDA guidelines, operate within their budgets, maximize use of their commodity foods and prepare for their administrative reviews, they need help. Our program helps them overcome many of the challenges they face by providing real food and real help — to achieve real results.”

A full news release on the partnership was issued this morning.
