102 • FOODSERVICE EQUIPMENT & SUPPLIES • APRIL 2017 facility design p r o j e c t o f t h e m o n t h the house and improves the production flow from delivery to service. In addition, a refurbished dining area enhances high school students' dining experience. "We've literally gone from a 1960s look to a contem- porary, open, well-lit space that is inviting," reports Susan Knight, the district's nutrition services manager until her retirement on Jan. 31, 2017. Since the renovation, meal participation has increased by 15 percent and students' selection of meals reimbursable by the government is up 7 percent. This is a significant increase, particularly for a high school with an open-campus policy. Improved aesthetics and the stations' positioning both con- tribute to the participation increase. Additional changes contributing to the larger reimbursable meal participation increase include a larger variety of menu items that also meet the USDA's nutritional guidelines. "Hot Equipment Key 1.
