Refrigerator and freezer space for K-12 school meal operations is at a greater premium than ever before, between distributors making less-frequent deliveries and other supply chain-related pressures. Are you re-prioritizing your equipment wish list with this in mind? If a walk-in cooler and/or freezer has become an urgent need, a new SN Plus article, “Wondering About Walk-Ins?” offers advice on making the most of this big investment

Many sizes and configurations are available, as are outside units to help address facilities without any room to expand. This article explores questions to ask in determining the right unit for your unique needs, as well as maintenance advice to maximize your investment over the long run.

Individual SN Plus articles are published periodically as extras to School Nutrition magazine’s print and digital editions.  Share it with your team members. We simply ask that if you share it outside of the school nutrition community, credit should be provided to School Nutrition/School Nutrition Association.

School Nutrition thanks Polar King International for its generous support in making this article available.
