This week is my CRE review you ask what is that?
It is where the state comes out and reviews my menu's, my production sheets which are my everyday how much do I need to cook, what and when was it's temperature, and how much was leftover paperwork. They will also review my spending, how I use, track and keep safe my commodities.
She will watch a breakfast and lunch service to make sure we are serving and counting each child's meal as a real reimbursable meal, which as a school who offers 4 items for breakfast and needs the student to pick 3 and 5 for lunch needing them to choose 4, we could get docked for not complying with these rules. Since I offer so many more choices than required I don't have to many fears but there is always in the back of one's mind what have I forgotten.
Being self taught yet sponge like I hope I have taught myself well and since I also belong to a group of school food service professionals I hope again that I have learned everything right that they have shared with me through the years.
She will also be looking at parts I don't control but have been guiding others in pointing out what she will be looking at and they have done incredible work in getting everything ready for her 3 day visit.
I will be back by the weekend I hope with a smile on my face and a song in my heart and one more mark off of my things that cause me stress list.
If you have any pull with the MAN above or Mother Earth, or just can send a little hell yes you can do it my way it would be very much appreciated.
