Some of our early education centers have commercial kitchens where wholesome Child and Adult Care Food Program compliant meals are prepared and served by Cooks and Cook assistants.
Meals are served family style to children and are used as an opportunity to role model the action of serving, eating, sharing table manners, and so forth. They document the meal prep process in compliance with food and health regulations.
