Marsing School District implements Fully-managed Digital Menu Boards across campuses
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sterling, VA. May 19, 2015: Idaho’s Marsing Joint School District announces implementation of multi-campus digital menu boards by Mvix across the district. The school district, which was awarded the HealthierUS School Challenge Silver medal, aims to get kids interested in their eating habits. The Mvix digital menu boards are playing an important role in the Marsing School District mission: to educate all students to lead productive, satisfying and responsible lives now and in the future.
Today’s students have more food choices than ever, and not all of them are healthy. For child nutrition administrators, this means that they need to be even more distinctive in the way they market food. Kids today are also very technologically savvy and they are constantly surrounded by digital imagery. So using multimedia to grab and keep their attention is a no-brainer. Digital menu boards marry technology with healthy options, which encourages the kids to make healthy food choices.
The Marsing School District Nutrition Services serves the elementary, middle and high school with one cafeteria. They actively advocate healthy food choices and lifestyles, and were recognized by the HealthierUS School Challenge for the effort, winning the Silver award. The HealthierUS School Challenge was established to recognize schools that are creating healthier school environments through their promotion of good nutrition and physical activity. “The Mvix digital menu boards are simple and low-cost and most important of all, they help improve the kids’ participation in healthier choices while decreasing waste,” said Teresa Bettleyon, the Director of Child Nutrition.
"Bringing this technology to the school district was a goal of mine and after about two years of research I found the right digital menu board solution with Mvix,” said Teresa. “Mvix was very cost-effective compared to other providers that we looked at.” The digital menu boards are not only revolutionizing the serving lines, but they’re also allowing Teresa and her team to add nutritional facts like calories, fat grams and protein. "If students are aware of their dietary intake, they can start making better choices. I am very satisfied with the digital menu boards!".
The Marsing School District also enrolled in the Mvix Managed Service. This service includes a portfolio of offerings for the turnkey and comprehensive management of the digital signage network. The service offerings include content design and production and scheduling; playlist, template and layout setups; monitoring and operational support and maintenance and network management. “This service has made managing the menu boards so easy for me. All I need to do is provide Mvix with my menus and voila! They design the content, accompanying art, and layout and they schedule the menus,” added Teresa”
“Digital menu boards are an investment for any school system to consider,” said Mike Kilian, the Mvix Director of Business Development. “We’re glad to partner with Marsing School District to provide a platform to actively engage students with attention grabbing content that educates them about a healthy lifestyle.”
