Using School Lunch Online Systems to Meet CDC Protocols
Torrance CA—HotLunch.com, a school lunch management tool, has utilized their school lunch online system to accommodate for classroom-based lunch distribution, paperless reporting and ordering, and cashless payments to help schools continue their school lunch programs while meeting CDC protocols.
HotLunch.com uses its school lunch online system to bring the school lunch management and ordering process to the 21st century. Their goal is to help schools eliminate paper order forms and cash payments. In the past year, many schools have struggled to continue their school lunch program while adhering to CDC protocols. With HotLunch.com’s contactless options and ability to automate a classroom-based lunch distribution, it helps to minimize contact so that schools can continue their school lunch program. The school lunch ordering and management process are made easier with HotLunch.com through their online menus, card payments, mobile app, and automated reporting.
The school lunch online system helps schools to meet CDC protocols by helping automatically generate reports to accommodate for classroom-based lunch distribution. Parents will pre-order their child’s lunch online by using the online menus and secure card payments. They can either order through the mobile app or on their desktop through HotLunch.com. Based on the orders received, the kitchen will be emailed a report of the items that they need to prepare. They will prep, bag, and label food items. They will then group them according to grade and classroom to be distributed. By delivering lunches directly to the classroom, the system allows for reduced contact that is associated with cafeteria lines. Additional ways to minimize the spread of germs include wearing a mask between periods of eating, improving ventilation, frequent handwashing, and using disposable cutlery.
Implementing a school lunch online system that allows for an automated classroom-based distribution model can save schools time and money on their school lunch program. This allows school lunch providers to gain peace of mind and spend more time ensuring that students and families receive an excellent school lunch service.
