Dining Guide for Meals in the Classroom

“The Dining Guide for Meals in the Classroom is designed to help you easily communicate your district procedures for serving meals in the classroom (MIC) to key stakeholders within their school community. MIC could refer to breakfast, lunch, supper and/or snacks.

As schools reopen following COVID-19 closures, districts will utilize different scenarios for feeding students. We have developed a suite of resources to help school nutrition professionals communicate with all stakeholders plans and procedures for eating in the classroom. Please note: This guide is not intended to provide guidance or training for school nutrition department staff.

To use this guide most effectively, already have your plans and policies in place. Each template is an editable Word document where you can customize and adjust as needed for sharing with the intended stakeholder group.”
