California School Fiscal Services

Providing comprehensive business office and consulting services to K-12 traditional schools and charters



Nutrition Services Metrics - Author: Habib Tahmas

Posted on July 17, 2014 at 10:25 AM

Having recently made the shift from the district office fiscal side to the nutrition services department as the accounting manager; it’s been a rewarding year learning about this fascinating and dynamic area of school business. Over the last year I have been able to develop some metrics/KPI’s to gauge certain aspects of our operations. These include, among others:

· Monthly Average Daily Participation (ADP) by site/grade level


· Changes in ADP as compared to the prior years


· Current year month-to-month percent change in ADP


· Participation percentages for breakfast & lunch based on Average Daily Attendance (ADA)


· Meals per labor hour


· Average daily cost of inventory used for meals by site


· Average cost of inventory used per meal


In our continuous effort of becoming more efficient with our food and labor costs while increasing student participation and overall revenues; I am soliciting input from our seasoned (no pun intended) nutrition services professionals as to what other metrics/KPI’s they use to measure the effectiveness of operations as well suggestions on increasing participation.


 Currently we have a budget of over $30M, serve nearly 10M meals per year at 60 sites, and a department staff count of approximately 350. We also operate a full catering program, a summer feeding program at all of our school sites as well as several community parks under the Seamless Summer Feeding Option (SSFO), and vend meals to 3 non-district schools. As of 2013-14, we are a provision 2 district with nearly 90% of our student population qualifying for free and reduced meals.


 I look forward to the collaboration and sharing of information on strategies to increase participation (specifically for breakfast as our average participation is currently around 25% of ADA while lunch is at 75%), cost tracking methods for various programs (i.e. CACFP, summer feeding program, catering, etc.), and other useful dashboard items. I will gladly share some of our analytics/data, as requested.

I want to show some appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this type of trouble. Right after exploring through the search engines and meeting recommendations which are not pleasant, I believed my entire life was well over. Being alive without the approaches to the difficulties you have solved by way of the write-up is a critical case, and those that could have adversely affected my career if I had not encountered the website. The skills and kindness in handling every part was important. I'm not sure what I would have done if I hadn't come upon such a subject like this. I can at this time look forward to my future. Thanks a lot very much for this reliable and results-oriented help. I won't think twice to propose your site to any individual who would like tips on this subject matter.
