Grab the quick school food service essentials guide!


New York and New Jersey schools continue to face challenges as we reopen…again. From remote learning, to safety procedures, and drastic changes and demands of food service operations for staff and students.

School foodservice operators are looking for versatility in their products. They want products that they can use now for to assist with foodservice during the pandemic but be able to repurpose and utilize in the future to make their operations easier.

Challenge #1: In-Classroom Meal Service

One of the biggest concerns faculty face is keeping food fresh and at temperature from kitchen to classroom. While the demand for a solution certainly increased during the pandemic, the issue is still critical.

Solution: Insulated Transport

Insulated transport allows for seamless kitchen to classroom transition. Our favorite, the Pro Cart Ultra, is able to hold BOTH hot and cold food at the desired temperature, at the same time.

  • Insulates to maintain temperatures for 4+ hours
  • Exterior is rust-proof and dent-resistant for lasting service
  • 8 sets of adjustable stainless steel rails hold food pans, sheet pans, trays, and large pizza boxes

Solution: GoBoxes (including for Milk Crates) & GoBags

Rain or shine, heat or snow, the Cambro GoBox always keeps temperature quality for 4+ hours. Schools have relied heavily on implementing GoBoxes & GoBags into their classroom meal delivery.

GoBoxes are lightweight, stackable and easy to clean – even offering an available dolly for easy transport.

Solution: Ultimate Sheet Pan Rack

While the Ultimate Sheet Pan Rack was designed to hold sheet pans, it is up to the operator to decide what those sheet pans will hold. This is a great alternative to the larger insulated transports. You can pack and transport hot or cold meals to classrooms.

Challenge #2: Flexible Dining Locations

One of the biggest frustrations we keep hearing from directors is the need to be mobile. Besides in-classroom dining, schools have had the need to find alternatives to the cafeteria. Implementing remote dining and Grab & Go solutions has been a game changer.

Solution: Flex Station

Designed to meet school food service challenges, Flex Stations are a convenient and an easily accessible way for Grab & Go snacks and meals for school meal programs.

Solution: Vending Carts & Versa Bars

Vending carts have been used for mobile food sales or events. Portable buffet systems to could be configured in a multitude of ways to offer hot or cold food to people in any cafeteria setting. 

The pandemic has brought on the need for alternative/flexible feeding locations. You can maximize social distancing by setting up multiple stations within a cafeteria to avoid lines, or set up satellite feeding locations in an auditorium, gymnasium, or even outside as the weather gets nicer.
