Let our exprienced staff of Registered Dietitians and former food service directors partner with you to write award-winning menus, provide fresh ideas, and offer technical assistance.
CN Resource's Registered Dietitians maintain your menus, recipes, and ingredients in whichever USDA-approved software program you prefer.
Each month (or whatever time period you choose), you'll receive a customized menu package, including production records and recipes, written to your kids' preferences, that considers your labor, equipment, bids, commodities, etc. The package can be sent electronically or hardcopy.
Rest assured your menus are always in compliance with USDA/FNS rules and regulations. Our experts audit hundreds of school menus each year on behalf of State Agencies across the country.
Our customers use our services in three different ways. For example...
1 A very large district in the northeast has our dietitians remote into their USDA-approved menu program and write the menus while maintaining the entire database of ingredients, recipes, production records, and menus.
2 A midsize district in the west has us write their menus in the same USDA-approved menu program they use. When we are finished, we simply send them an electronic file with the information in it. All they have to do is print it out.
3 Finally, many of out smaller districts prefer receiving PDF copies of their menu package. We use one of the USDA-approved menu programs to write their menus, recipes, and production records and then e-mail the files or place them in a cloud-based service such as Dropbox.
