As the summer months have blazed on, school foodservice consultant Kern Halls has been crisscrossing the country, helping foodservice teams put on a fresh face for the coming school year. Halls’ Orlando-based company, Ingenious Culinary Concepts, accomplished this at Maricopa High School this summer, casting fresh eyes on several elements of the service area: reach-through windows, entryways, windows and condiment stations. Getting these things right can change the whole face of a school food program, Halls has found.
Maricopa (Ariz.) Unified School District Director Suzette Moe was looking for a “spruce up” for the Phoenix-area high school’s serving space. “We recommended adding a new condiment bar and new design on the walls and window treatments,” Halls says.
