Teamwork + Dedication = Success for Children
Michael Horn The Edu-Source Corporation
Working in the Food Service Industry my entire career I have been fortunate enough to experience both sides of our important business. Even after 27 years in Food Service and 8 years as an Industry partner, I am still amazed by how seamless all the moving parts work together to provide a nutritious breakfast, lunch, and in some districts, dinner to the millions of children across our country each day. This symphony of hard work, thoughtfulness, and brilliance is challenged constantly by waves of new policy, regulations, guidelines, and economic downswings and budget shortfalls. Adding to the complexity are the shifting needs of the individual students, their parents, and the surrounding community. Based on my observations, regardless of the challenges or complexity facing them each day the Food Service Industry is incredibly successful and manages to run an efficient and cost effective operation 24/7.

Teamwork is part of the Food Service Industry DNA. We, the Food Service Industry, understand the power of working shoulder-to-shoulder to solve the daily glitches, annual planning difficulties, or the next generation of challenges facing us in the 21st century.

profound impact to the children and families in Texas.
What is the common bond that drives this Teamwork?
Smart teamwork is driven by vigilant dedication in providing a nutritional meal to the children of this great state of Texas. This is an important mission as studies continue to show the linkage between nutrition and scholastic performance. But as we all know, a large component of participation in food programs is driven by the quality of the food presentation and ambiance—it’s all about the experience. As a result, this common bond drives everyone involved to put their personalities aside to create that quality atmosphere. Each individual on the team, from the cashier to Superintendent or the carpenter to the CEO, all provide something different and it’s the diversity of thought focused on a common goal that makes the solution engine powerful.
