Title:Provide fewer menu options to avoid over-preparation and/or high volumes of leftovers

School lunchrooms -- Environmental aspects
Food waste -- Source reduction (Waste management)
Abstract:Some items available in school lunchrooms which are considered “extra foods” of “minimal nutritional value” are not creditable in offer versus serve (OVS) programs. Eliminating such offerings can reduce confusion in pricing and record keeping. Providing fewer menu items creates less waste, can help prevent over-preparation of food or high volumes of leftovers, and helps to focus efforts on the improvement of food items being served.
