USA: Cherokee Foods offers healthier menu options as new way of using USDA-sponsored school food programs is launched
With a focus on the essential goals faced by school food service directors - how to deliver more nutritious and better tasting food to students ever more efficiently, Cherokee Foods has launched marketing efforts of its innovative food products to school districts across the south. Cherokee Foods processes chicken products offered to schools through USDA-sponsored commodity programs in a wholly different manner than has previously been offered to this market, according to the firm's president and founder, Ms. Lenna Gordon, a veteran food service industry executive. "We are providing school food service directors with a program that enhances the 'real food' aspect of what they are serving which is one of the USDA's stated national nutritional goals for children. Most important, our products contain no skin, fillers or other additives. Cherokee Foods offers 100% solid muscle and breast meat products that are not offered in the current marketplace," Ms. Gordon said.
