Accepting Food Orders


Food deliveries are checked by food service staff before they are accepted at all kitchens.


  1. Delivered items are checked against the “Delivery Invoice”.
  2. If all items are accounted for, food service staff will sign and date the delivery order. If items are unaccounted for, note on the Delivery Checklist before it is signed and dated.
  3. If there is damaged or missing food, please notify the Nutrition Manager via email so a credit can be requested.
