GRAND RAPIDS, Mich (WOTV) – Cafeteria dining in Coopersville Public Schools may surprise you. Melissa Alley, Chartwells K12 Food Service Director, joined Maranda in school to talk all about lunch trends. The modern-day school café features healthy, nutritious and delicious foods that reflect local and on-trend tastes, with a variety of options.
Besides students loving this fresh take on cafeteria food, these lunches play a big role in educating and empowering kids to make healthy choices in their life, not to mention fueling them for the day ahead. In this case, technology is encouraged, Coopersville uses Nutrislice, a mobile app that helps them communicate with their students in a fun way.
