Vulcan Names Burke To Head New Schools Program

Kids are heading back to school and the Let’s Move! healthy-eating initiative continues to place salad bars and steamers in the nation’s school cafeterias.

Vulcan has tapped school nutrition specialist Mike Burke, CFSP, as K-12 ambassador for its newly launched “Just 4 Schools” program addressing the changing foodservice preparation needs of the K-12 segment; Burke is responsible for ensuring Vulcan continues to provide the right products, service, training and support for grades K-12. Burke, a veteran of more than two decades with Vulcan, has been involved with the School Nutrition Association since 1982.

“After speaking with numerous K-12 foodservice operators, it was clear we, as equipment providers, could do a lot more to help them adapt to the new USDA guidelines,” Burke said. “Equipment in general also can be a source of frustration, so we wanted to do everything possible to alleviate many of those pain points.”
