K-12 operators and school districts across the nation are facing industry challenges. With this in mind, Land O’Lakes has made it our mission to provide resources and solutions to make the lives of foodservice professionals across the country easier.
Inspired to help operators pivot menu plans during constraining circumstances, our trusted K-12 nutritionist and chef, Susie Berglund, developed a guide filled with substitution ideas for cheese products. It’s meant to keep schools moving forward during unpredictable times.
“We know some of the challenges that are on the horizon, and we’re trying to stay in front of it and be as much of a resource to our K-12 operators as we possibly can be," Chef Susie says.
This all-in-one guide will give operators flexibility in the kitchen and provide product and recipe recommendations for substitutions.
The takeaway? There are options. With operators having to be incredibly agile, this guide is a game-changer. Operators will be able to see, for example, how to create a substitution sauce for our shelf-stable sauces when a product or shipment gets delayed. Chef Susie calls it speed-scratch. And things like knowing how to make a pivot as simple as using American Cheese Slices can really make a difference in K-12 kitchens everywhere.
