Meal Patterns

Create a well-balanced menu

The atomic weight of nitrogen. Asking Marissa to prom. The capital of Tanzania. College applications deadlines. The third act of Macbeth. Tonight’s game against the crosstown rival.

This Portland-area high school student already has a lot on his plate. The last thing on his mind is the latest USDA standards in portions and meal patterns.

Luckily, his cafeteria features equipment like the Hot/Cold Drop-Ins from Vollrath, so choosing a healthy, well-balanced meal doesn’t take much brainpower. Vollrath’s knowledge and product lineup make it easy for kids to choose fresh, healthy foods. Plus, promoting and providing nutritional options helps schools qualify for additional funding.
