Preparing for the Holidays - A Guide for School Child Nutrition

Dec 05, 2016

With the holidays coming up and schools being closed, here are a few tips to help you enjoy your holiday break without worrying about product loss:

  • Make sure all of your refrigerated cabinet doors are closed properly
  • If there is excessive moisture building up in your cooler, it may mean that the door is not closing properly and/or the gasket needs to be replaced
  • Clean condenser filters
  • If you hear the condenser running more often and for longer than usual, have It checked out, as this could be a warning of equipment failure
  • Inspect evaporator coils for any damage and make sure they are clean
  • Make sure you keep the area around your evaporators and condensing units clear to ensure proper air flow
  • Make sure temperature is where it should be. Fluctuations in temperature can be an indicator that something is not working properly
  • Make sure the lights are off when exiting any walk-ins.Lights produce heat which will cause your unit to run more, in order to hold the optimal temperature
  • When turning off power, make sure you are not shutting the power to the coolers/freezers
  • If you have a temperature monitoring system, make sure that the proper people are set up to receive alerts, in case a temperature goes out of range
  • Have a backup plan of where to store food, if you notice a cooler or freezer starting to fail
