In a recent article, Food Management featured HHS’ dining services program at St. John’s Northwestern Military Academy, a boarding school for grades 7-12 located in Wisconsin. The school has continued to operate safely during COVID-19, and HHS Chef Chris McKenzie and the team have impressively improved the food quality while also adapting to restrictions due to COVID-19.
From the article:
SJNMA is [HHS’] first culinary operation in a school environment and began last fall when HHS took over the operation of dining services at SJNMA from another contract company. It has already produced increased general satisfaction among students about the meal program even despite the limitations imposed by COVID-required protocols, says [Dean of Academic Advancement Eric] Wozniak.
“Kids pretty much notice everything,” he says about the change in providers. “Teens are very critical, and it’s hard to satisfy everybody, but while most reactions [to the meal service] focused on COVID protocols, I think there was definitely a positive shift from the previous provider. I’d say [food] quality has definitely gone up and students have responded positively to that.”
