We used the Component Meal Pattern of a cold sandwich, fresh fruit, fresh veggie and milk.
Today, six years later, we have expanded to:
40After School Programs at schools and community locations.
Supper Program History:
Program Transition1. In 2010, we transitioned from a cold sandwich entrée to serving a hot entrée at all school sites and all but two community partnership sites. 2. Sodexo staff was hired to serve at school locations.
We serve the hot entrée on a paper plate, along with the fresh fruit, fresh veggie and milk which are served in a paper sack to streamline the serving process and also minimize the opportunity for incomplete meals being served and counted.
As we continue to provide a quality program and expand our At-Risk Supper Program, we have developed partnerships with 12 community entities.
