The Nourish to Flourish (N2F) Data Sharing & Analytics Initiative integrates industry standard supply chain technology with existing K-12 foodservice workflow to revolutionize this $9 Billion segment of the industry. Item specific placement on menu plans and recipes will transform the way our schools procure, prepare and measure successful integration of meal components. Sharing sales and nutrition data and analytics will improve outcomes within the federally defined USDA guidelines.
