Newsletters from your foodservice provider are an amazing resource for parents, teachers, and staff in K-12 schools to understand exactly what is going on in the lunchroom and beyond. Whether these newsletters are produced and distributed weekly, monthly, bi-monthly, or a different, mutually decided time period, there are so many pros to providing newsletters.
Newsletters can cover numerous topics important to those reading it.
Events happening in your lunchroom can be shared in features in the newsletter. This keeps everyone informed on what is engaging the children throughout their day. Added bonus if the parents or staff are to be involved in the events, as this is a quick way to brief them on what to expect.
2. Local Farms
Supporting local businesses is essential, especially when it comes to what children are eating. Featuring local farms in the newsletter is a way to not only support farms in your area, but also shows exactly where their food is coming from.
3. New Menu Items
Parents in particular love this aspect about newsletters: featuring new menu items. It is useful to know exactly what their children are eating, and when any new addition is made to the existing menu, this is a great way to highlight it.
4. Highlight Staff
Highlighting your foodservice team members is a great way for everyone to feel connected. Not only this, but showing appreciation for your staff is what you should always be striving to do.
