Food Service Menu System

FSMSLogo

FSMS tracks food nutritional content according to Montana Office of Public Instructions guidelines and United States Department of Agriculture standards.

Front Desk Software, L.L.C. developed the Food Service Menu System (FSMS) for use in the Townsend, Montana School District.  The Townsend School District was looking for ways in which to better track meal costs, and which was better able to assist in the building of a nutritionally fit school menu.  Because of Federal and State requirements for school meals and also because of budgeting considerations, they were unable to locate any already made system which met their requirements.  Front Desk Software, L.L.C. was hired to create FSMS as a Windows based system directly to the school’s wants and needs.

FSMS tracks food nutritional content according to Montana Office of Public Instructions guidelines and United States Department of Agriculture standards.  This enables the Townsend School district to be confident that they are serving sound meals to students.

This system also tracks inventory, food costs, it allows for the creation of recipes and tracks overall meal costs including preparation and clean-up costs.  It allows the director to find the lowest priced food distributors while maintaining the nutritional integrity of the menu.  With these facts and figures, the director was able to save over $13,000.00 in the first semester of use, and received an award in 1998 for saving district funds.

FSMS was developed with many factors in mind.  United States regulations and laws regarding food preparation had to be considered so that the program could keep up with the stringent Department of Agriculture standards.  Accounting and inventory protocols also needed to be used in order for the program to operate as required by the district.

Top Features:

  • $13,000.00 Savings

Working together, Front Desk Software, L.L.C. and the Townsend School District were able to save the taxpayers of Broadwater County thousands of dollars in food savings and in administration time.
