New school cafeteria model

DESCRIPTION

To provide students with healthy food at school, San Francisco Unified School District hired Revolution Foods, a caterer that serves fresh and high-nutrition meals, but 72 percent students weren’t showing up at the dining place. Long lines and rush to finish do not create a good atmosphere for eating. Then IDEO entered the scene and working with more than 1,300 students, parents, union leaders, nutrition staff, board commissioners, principals, teachers, and community groups, redesigned school lunch. Together, they developed recommendations for three age-appropriate dining experiences, including communal eating and student-designed spaces, employed new technologies, and developed a robust business model. In September 2013, the San Francisco Unified School Board expressed unanimous enthusiasm for the project and introduced this new vision to a number of schools in the city.

JUSTIFICATION

Another project addressing the needs of students and school pupils and utilising the design thinking methodology to solve problems of availability of healthy meals at schools. The testing phase was followed by introducing the new cafeteria model to a number of schools in San Francisco.
