Many schools have modified their cafeteria food service to include social distancing methods, new cleaning and sanitizing processes, and planning for grab-and-go meal production and service.

Following Social Distancing Guidelines

Social distancing has become interwoven into every aspect of life. The first thing we think of is the 6-foot separation rule, but there are more ways to ensure that proper safety protocols are met. For example, using Plexiglas Counter Shields and table dividers can help to maintain proper separation between students and staff. When combined with other distancing measures it becomes much easier to follow the recommended CDC guidelines.

Additionally when creating environments where spacing is critical, consider removing the interactions altogether by allowing students to pick up their food from open display and single door reach-in merchandisers.

Limiting Surface Contact & Cleaning / Sanitizing

In the cafeteria it is also important to make sure that surfaces are free from pathogens. One of the best ways to accomplish this is to incorporate disposable surface coverings like table covers, disposable trays, containers and flatware.

In areas where specific functions prevent the use of disposables, wearing proper PPE combined with specialized sanitizing procedures will not only help to keep students and staff safe, but will also serve to provide peace-of-mind.

Menu Planning and Prep

Imagine how much more effective your life would be with a glimpse into the future. If you had a crystal ball that could provide exact information about what each student will eat, what stock you need to buy, and could label every meal for each student before they stepped a single foot into the cafeteria; would it help you keep people safe? For many others it does, and it's not magic. It's Choosi.
