Wayne Roe, executive chef, Sodexo, Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, says: This recipe came from an exchange student that lived with my family when I was 13 years old. Her name was Irene and she was from Santiago, Chile. She made this recipe for us, and it became a family recipe. My mom had the recipe written on an index card, but she lost it. When I was 17, I wrote Irene asking for the recipe. It has wonderful flavors with the peppers and onions combined with the raisins and olives. I’ve always wondered what happened to Irene.

Nearly two-thirds (65%) of millennials, compared to 44% overall, say they’re more likely to purchase and willing to pay at least slightly more for menu items with organic claims, according to Technomic’s 2016 Healthy...

We get the new folks abridged business cards saying, “Hi, my name is so-and-so and I work in nutrition department.” We thought it would give them more ownership of the program and elevate their status and position in the organization. It also gives our team more self-confidence and self-worth as an employee, which can be a challenge with foodservice workers.
