Sacramento, CA, November 10, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Epicure Digital, a leader in digital and dry erase menu boards for K-12 schools, introduces its new "MyPlate with Specials" Menu Boards and Expanded offering of MyPlate Movable Menu Boards at CalSNA 2014 California Annual School Nutrition Conference, Sacramento, CA, November 14-15, 2014, Booth #808.
A main challenge of School Food Services these days is to stop the ongoing decline in school lunch participation, as published in the GAO-14-104 report per congressional requesters:
“Nationwide, participation in the National School Lunch Program declined in recent years after having increased steadily for more than a decade. According to our analysis of USDA’s data, total student participation—the total number of students who ate school lunches—dropped from school years 2010-2011 through 2012-2013 for a cumulative decline of 1.2 million students (or 3.7 percent), with the majority of the decrease occurring during school year 2012-2013,” said the GAO in its report.
“The decrease in the total number of students eating school lunches during the last two school years was driven primarily by a decrease of 1.6 million students paying full price for meals, despite increases in the number of students eating school lunches who receive free meals,” said the report.
Epicure's "MyPlate with Specials" Menu Boards http://www.myplatemenuboards.com/myplate-with-specials-segment-dry-erase-menu-boards.html provide school food services with a marketing tool to highlight their lunch and breakfast main offerings and A-La-Carte offerings in their own Specials area, as restaurants do to help increase participation in their limited offers.
Epicure’s Expanded offering of MyPlate Movable Menu Boards http://www.myplatemenuboards.com/myplate-on-wheels.html
provides K-12 school food services with practical and attractive ways to meet the USDA requirements to identify food items for lunch and breakfast in any school service line - indoor or outdoor. School can mount a lunch and breakfast menu board back-to-back for use at both meals, ideal for promoting lunch while going to or eating breakfast.
The uniqueness of the new Epicure Menu Board signage solutions are creative and effective nutritional labeling signage options to update daily changes on menu boards in school cafeterias quickly and easily – in less than one minute – saving time and money.
