Offer versus Serve

  • What is Offer versus Serve?

    Offer versus Serve (OvS) is a concept that applies to menu planning and to the determination of reimbursable meals for grades 6th through 12. Offer vs Serve allows students to decline menu items that they do not wish to eat.

    Why we decided to implement OvS?

    • Less food waste.
    • Cost savings when preparing less food.
    • Increased customer satisfaction.
    • Students eat better when they are allowed choices.
