Feeding Students During COVID-19

As campus dining halls are closing to dine-in patrons, colleges and universities must develop streamlined processes to feed students and staff remaining on and near campus. This requires moving from a traditional production model to grab-and-go and delivery options. Our webinar shares ideas, best practices, and in place processes to manage your dining operations during the COVID-19 crisis.

Our on-demand webinar covers:

  • Selecting menu items that are portable and transferable
  • Managing production and staffing interruptions
  • How to get proper nutrition to students who are isolated or quarantined
  • Online or phone ordering and payment options
  • Setting up food pickup locations
  • Order delivery options
