The article reports on the decision of the Broome-Tioga Board of Cooperative Educational Services, a coalition of 15 public school districts in New York state, to create one menu for all of its 41 elementary schools. The program, which will go into effect at the beginning of the new school year, is designed to give the districts greater buying power, says Molly Morgan, a consultant with the cooperative. The single menu will help each school's menu planning and will lead to more consistency.
