Standard operating procedures (SOPs) are written instructions intended to document how to perform a routine activity. The primary reason Mercedes ISD Child Nutrition Services rely on SOPs is to help ensure consistency and quality in their products and tasks. SOPs are also useful tools to operationalize and communicate important corporate policies, government regulations, and best practices.


The MISD Child Nutrition Services SOPs will be posted shortly to give access to anyone who is interested in learning the basic standard operating procedures for our department. These standards are updated on an as-needed basis or annually.
