SchoolFood has developed a collection of over 130 recipes for healthy, child friendly, and simply delicious fare - main dishes, side dishes, and sauces. Our team of culinary professionals tryout, adjust, and retest a recipe concept several times before it is published to guarantee that the diverse pallets and requests of the 1.1 million NYC students in over 1,700 schools are met.
Our comprehensive recipes incorporate formulas to produce significant quantities expected in an institutional food service program – recipes are scaled to produce yields that range from 18 to over 250. They are sensibly developed to assure that our cooks, production, and preparation teams across the City can easily learn the recipes and produce high-quality meals. As a result, our staff members grow into confident Cooks because the recipes eliminate guesswork and certify that a large quantity of meals will turn out as it was intended. In other words, every time the recipe is prepared, the same food product is produced—in taste, yield, serving size, nutritional value, and student satisfaction.
Our goal is to always serve healthy food and maintain high nutritional standards while offering delicious and satisfying menu choices.
