Offer vs Serve Lunch Program
Offer verses serve is a concept that applies to menu planning and how the lunch is served. It allows students to decline some of the food offered in a reimbursable lunch or breakfast. The goal of offer verses serve is to reduce food waste and to permit students to choose the foods they want to eat.
