Menu Planner

HPS is excited to announce its new Menu Planner, which is slated to be released in the fall of 2017 as another value-added HPS resource!

Some may call it a Cycle Menu System. Others may call it a Nutritional Tracker. Still some may refer to it as a way to share with parents and students what’s for lunch today. Go ahead and call it all that, because you won’t be wrong!


Driven by input from our Members, our Menu Planner is designed to deliver to our Members in the educational field a single, easy-to-use tool that will help them meet all that is required of them from the district level all the way to the USDA.

This new, easy-to-use tool will be provided through your HPS membership. We believe our Menu Planner will exceed all of your expectations!

Members: Watch for more details in the Bottom Line magazine, Monthly Report eBlast, our website and from your region manager.
