A Specialist’s View on School Foodservice

Q&A with Gina Fero, K-12 Specialist, The Fischer Group

With its fast heating and consistent performance, the FWE “Clymate IQ ®” Model PHTT-12 Heated Holding Cabinet is a perfect choice for schools.

Q. What challenges you do see currently facing K-12 foodservice?

Gina Fero: I think the biggest problem is that we don’t know what the new administration’s going to do with current [school lunch] programs. There’s a lot of talk about block grants, which could really negatively affect the program because every state would be running their own program. The new meal pattern is also tough. We need to be feeding the kids food that we know they’ll eat and that’s always a challenge. You need good equipment to be able to do that.

Q. How are students’ tastes changing?

GF: Kids have been to the local malls, universities and stadiums. They have a more sophisticated palate and they know what they like.

The RH-B-32 : Full Sized Rethermalization Ovens for Baskets

Q. Are you seeing more schools do their prep and cooking ahead of time and rethermalizing later?

GF: I see more and more districts creating a few “fast-scratch” signature items, and that sometimes involves rethermalizing and holding. There’s no way that you could make something fresh in 20 minutes for anywhere from 300 up to 800 students.

Q. How can FWE products help K-12 foodservice work more efficiently?

GF: Having a good rethermalizer and good holding cabinet are key to every K-12 operation. It’s essential to get the quality food out. FWE can look at a district’s menu and help fit the right piece of equipment to meet the district’s needs. FWE has the right staff to ensure you’re going to get a quality product.

Don’t forget about FWE’s newest update to their Cook & Hold line.  The newly redesigned LCH (Low Temp Cook and Hold) Series is versatile enough to cook and hold anything from beef, pork, and poultry to roasted potatoes, bread and pastries.  The oven you can’t live without saves money and labor by cooking overnight with lights out and holding to perfection until preparation and plating.

FWE’s Clymate IQ Heated Holding Cabinet will change the way you serve at banquets. The Clymate IQ reaches set heat and humidity levels in under 30 minutes.  Twice as fast as many other cabinets.  The Clymate IQ then keeps food at optimum serving temperatures through peak serving periods.  Portable and easy to use, it is perfect for short-term staging and extended holding times, eliminating hot spots and cold spots with minimal operator involvement.

Last but not least, FWE offers Refrigeration solutions that operate in the most demanding and punishing environments.  Tough construction absorbs vibration and shock during transport.  FWE’s forced air “COLD-TEMP” system maintains a balanced temperature that gently circulates cold air evenly throughout the cabinet.
