Effectively Managing Operations During COVID-19

Schools are shifting from traditional cafeteria meals to providing home meal kits and potentially contact-less meal service into the Fall.

To help with this shift, inTEAM is providing our Menu Planning and Meal Kit Platform free to all Indiana districts.

This software makes it simple to plan, pre-cost, procure, make last-minute changes and then produce, distribute and support reimbursement claims for healthy school breakfasts, lunches, and suppers. Learn More for a brief video overview.

About Rachel

A little about me: I started working in Child Nutrition in 2014, and I have worked at inTEAM as a Consultant since 2015. My previous work experience includes working as a Food Service Director at a small, independent district in Kentucky, so I am familiar with the daily operations at a district level. I also worked at the Kentucky Department of Education, where my duties included assisting with Administrative Reviews, supporting districts with their menu planning, and providing training to SFAs. I graduated from the University of Kentucky (Go Cats!) in 2011 with a degree in Human Nutrition. I am based out of Northern Kentucky, so I am just across the river from y’all. 😊
