For some schools the cafeteria isn't enough to meet the challenges of procedural changes needed to maintain social distancing guidelines. For those schools, classrooms and hallways are being used to provide access to meals and grab-and-go options.

CHARGE Action Plan:

Transporting Food From the Kitchen

For schools who have returned to either full in-person learning or even a hybrid-learning model, there has been a shift for not only how students are fed, but also where they are fed. In cases where the cafeteria isn't enough toaddress safety concerns while feeding their student body, hallway and classroom models have proven highly successful.

A large part of the success of hallway and classroom meal programs is getting the food to the students. The transportation of meals from the kitchen to the hallway or classroom requires more than just loading a cart and moving it. Individual containers and food temperature are also very important.

Reducing Contact Through Made-to-Order Meals

Made-to-order meals don't seem realistic in these times, but it is possible with Choosi. The Choosi App allows students and parents to pre-order food that can be delivered to students. When the food arrives at the classroom or hallway it is already packaged and labeled for each student. You don't have to worry about cross-contamination because the process supports non-contact delivery.

Did you know that even during the COVID-19 pandemic, the CDC and FRAC (Food Research & Action Center) state that innovative approaches to delivering meals are even more important when it comes to keeping staff and students safe? Read More

Cleaning & Sanitizing Plus Protection for Staff

Even in the classroom and hallway, cleaning and sanitizing are important. It is nearly impossible to always maintain social distancing protocols, and with winter on the doorstep, the possibility of outdoor activities is way down. To continue to follow safety protocols, the use of PPE will be even more important.

It may not always be a viable option to individually wipe everything, and for these times a backpack sanitizing sprayer can help keep pathogens away while providing minimal disruption to daily activity. A quick spray of sanitizer along railings, handles, desks can efficiently sanitize large surface areas. Additionally, by providing extra masks, you are taking proactive steps to ensure that mask mandates are followed.

The EPA has a great guide to help you prepare, plan, and implement cleaning and disinfecting protocols. You don't have to figure it out on your own. Start Here
