Safety is the most important factor to any school nutrition program. Even more important than nutrition itself, serving safe food that has been properly prepared and handled is the first goal to ensuring a safe student body.

Another important factor in school nutrition programs is funding. The bad news is budgets are getting tighter and tighter, and this means school cafeterias need to function even more efficiently than they have in the past. The good news is solutions exist that can help school nutrition programs meet both safety and efficiency standards at the same time.
