Taste-testers Wanted!!!

Monday, January 8th, 2018

Get a sneak peek inside our menu development process and influence what makes it onto our menus next year by participating in our taste-testing evaluations!

It's that time of year again! Time for CKC Good Food to test potential new menu items for next fall's menus. We are seeking groups of students and staff members to participate in taste-testing evaluation sessions February 19-23. It's a one-time commitment and takes only about one hour. Schools with onsite heating capabilities and schools that receive hot meals delivered from us are eligible to participate. 

Schools' responsibilities:

  1. Recruit 5-6 students and 2 staff members to participate in the evaluation session to be held on the day of your choosing during the week of February 19. 
  2. Review the survey we will provide to you soon and print copies for your evaluators. The surveys are very simple and provide important feedback in a consistent manner. 
  3. Take delivery of the samples, which will arrive with your regular lunch delivery on the day you choose for your evaluation. The samples will be delivered hot for taste-test purposes, even if your school has an oven onsite. Each school's evaluation group will sample 4 to 6 entrees. Each sample will be clearly marked so the survey questions will be easy to complete.
  4. Complete the surveys during the taste test.
  5. Return all surveys to CKC Good Food promptly after your evaluation session. You can give them to your delivery driver, scan and email them, or mail them to our office.  

Contact Nancy at by 4 p.m. on Tuesday, February 13, to participate.
