NutriStudents K-12 clients have realized participation increases of 10-20% or more in their first year during normal operations, recouping their investment in NutriStudents K-12 through increased revenues.
Regardless of how you measure success, NutriStudents K-12® delivers a return on your investment.
Our National School Lunch Program (NSLP) hot lunch menus have been wholeheartedly embraced by most students, resulting in less plate waste. With the NutriStudents K-12 system, your commodities are also fully incorporated into your menus, not wasted.
With the NutriStudents K-12 system, you get back the time you spend creating menus, adapting recipes and confirming compliance, developing training materials and publishing your menus.
NutriStudents K-12 helps reduce your food costs through our simplified market basket, training expenses by minimizing your reliance on outside training programs, and labor costs through the time-saving benefits of the system.
The NutriStudents K-12 system allows you to take full advantage of your commodities with our precise Commodity Forecasting Calculator. Replacing non-commodity items with commodity foods saves you money. A district or building with 1,000 students can fully use over $40,000 in commodities, thereby saving money on non-commodity ingredients.
Delicious food interests students. As students become familiar with a variety of NutriStudents K-12 NSLP menu weeks, participation, and in turn revenues, will increase. For a 1,000-student building or district, simply increasing participation from 50% to 60% results in a $64,800 revenue increase in the course of a 180-day school year (based on the maximum reimbursement rate of $3.60/meal).
