The Harvest Provisions Turkey brand of Cargill has launched a new website designed to help K-12 school foodservice operators enhance the appeal of their menus and grow their meal programs, while also complying with federal nutrition guidelines.

The website features in-depth details on the brand's more than 30 protein-rich, lower-fat, turkey products, which were created specifically for the unique needs of K-12 foodservice operations. The site also offers dozens of creative menu concepts featuring Harvest Provisions items, matching the diverse serving venues and times of today's schools - from breakfast to classroom and cafeteria lunches to after-school-snacking and beyond.

In addition, school foodservice operators will find insightful trend information related to childhood nutrition, as well as helpful training and product preparation tips. The site also offers guidance on ordering products through Cargill's convenient commodity processing program, which allows operators to use their USDA 100124 Turkey Chilled bulk turkey entitlements for value-added Harvest Provisions products.

"Many school foodservice operators struggle to find the right balance between providing smart nutrition and serving foods that students will get excited about eating," said Deborah Schulte, Cargill foodservice marketing manager. "Our turkey products, and our new website, make it easier for them to do both. The site is a unique resource containing value-added information that can help our customers boost program participation and run a better operation."
