By Donna Boss Linn-Mar High School Remodel Improves Efficiency, Student Satisfaction P rior to the renovation of Linn-Mar High School's foodservice operation, students waited up to 25 minutes to move through the service line to get their meals — which left them with only 5 minutes in the half-hour lunch period to sit down and eat. Today, the wait time is only 7 to 10 minutes for each of the 1,600 students (400 students are served during each of 4 lunch shifts) who participate in the school lunch program. That gives the high schoolers 20 minutes to relax and enjoy their meals. The Linn-Mar project's servery renovation features insightful design that accommodates the physical flow of students and foodservice staff through the space and provides students with more menu choices.
