This feature is designed to account for common meals served to multiple persons or a group of people (i.e., Meals-on-wheels, or child day care). The food items for these meals will then be included in the counts on the production sheets.
By creating a single profile (or using an existing profile) that creates the meal for the group you can indicate the number of people in that group by setting the multiple count.
It is recommended that a new profile be created to accommodate a generic meal specific to the group. If you use an existing resident, the food items are based on the selected resident's profile.
To initiate use the "Multiple Count Option, enter the number of meal counts to add to the production sheet. This defaults to 1 for the current resident. Add as many as you need to this count. Click Save when done.
