Taste tests reveal contenders for 2017-18 menus

Tuesday, March 14th, 2017

CKC is continuously exploring new menu ideas to help keep students interested and participating in school meal programs at our client schools. We're in the midst of taste testing several possible new entrees for our 2017-2018 menus, with help from students and staff at some of our schools. If your school is among those tasting our samples, thank you! 

The feedback we've received so far has been helpful for identifying the contenders and refining others that may have future potential. The taste tests are also giving us a chance to evaluate how both our scratch-cooked meals and prepared foods hold up through delivery and service. 

Based on the feedback received to date, the top three scratch-cooked entrees are:

  • Taco Chicken Filet
  • Supreme Beef Taco
  • BBQ Chicken Drumstick

These will make great additions to the wide variety of entrees on our current USDA-compliant menus.

So far, the buffalo chicken tenders and giant chicken poppers have been the students' favorite prepared meals -- but not for this guy. No words are necessary, in his case. 

Thanks to Hiawatha Leadership Academy Morris Park for sharing these fun photos!
