Foodservice Operation of the Month

Getting buy-in from young diners

On the latest episode of “Dig In,” Child Nutrition Director Alicia Tracy shares how she and her team strive to make meal time “fun time.”

Child Nutrition Director Alicia Tracy and her team at Whitesboro Independent School District go to great lengths to make the cafeteria an exciting place for their young customers, knowing that if they get students amped up about menu offerings, they’ll see a payoff in participation. 

“We try to get everybody involved and just make it fun,” Tracy says. A decorated serving line, themed meals and tower gardens are a few of the ways her staff works to get students’ attention and make meal time “fun time.” 

On this episode of “Dig In,” Tracy shares more about her team’s philosophy and how it's put into practice.
