F3 has all engines running to launch the new Lunch Box in June. We'll have
a brand new platform for our explodable recipes and menu planner to help schools meet the new USDA guidelines for healthy school meals;
new resources and tools to help schools transition to universal, after-the-bell breakfast, salad bar programs, and local suppliers;
the latest information on all the great changes coming up for school food: healthier snacks and vending machines, the new breakfast guidelines, and proposed rules to limit junk food advertising;
training videos and financial tools and great ways to involve students and parents in school food change; and
One important area that we're working is recipe development. When asked what they need most right now, school food service directors say, "Healthy recipes that kids LOVE!"
In the past few months, we've developed and tested 25 tasty recipes that meet the new USDA standards, and we're working on the next 25. These new recipes are a big step toward helping schools move from heat-and-serve equipment to cook-from-scratch kitchens.
