Increasing meal participation is critical for all programs. One of the driving questions many operators have is how to keep their menus relevant to the new generations of students while embracing the diversity of their students. Thanks to the adventurous palates of today’s parents, your students have been exposed to, and come to love, many more dishes with global flavors than previous generations.
