As you plan to prepare and serve your next meal, it may be helpful to review how many meals were provided daily during both meals over the past couple of months.
A couple of Important Reminders from the Kitchen
- Please do not freeze food in our stainless steel serving pans. These pans are needed by all of our teams for preparing and serving food, we only have a limited number.
- Please do not dump grease from food prepared down the floor drain under the braising pan. We do have a grease trap to collect incidental grease from the dish machine and sinks. However, if you dump extra grease down the drains two things could happen: MTKO will have a greater expense for cleaning the grease trap more often or (even worse) the sewer could back up into the kitchen. Please collect your grease in a large metal can and place the can in the reach-in freezer. Once it has setup, we will get it to the dumpster for you.
Thank you for your help with these items!!!
Quick Facts to Help Your Team Provide a Healthier Meal for our MTKO Guests
Is milk the only food that contains calcium?
No. Calcium can also be found in other dairy foods like yogurt and cheese, tofu made with calcium, canned salmon and sardines (if bones are eaten), some leafy greens (collards and spinach), soybeans and green soybeans (edamame), and calcium–fortified foods and drinks like soymilk, other plant-based “milks”, orange juice, and cereals. The amount of calcium in these other foods vary.
Are all products made from milk part of the Dairy Group?
No. Foods made from milk that retain their calcium content, such as yogurt and cheese, are part of the Dairy Group. However, foods made from milk that have little to no calcium – such as cream cheese, cream, and butter – are not part of the Dairy Group.
