food
philosophy

To us, nurturing bright minds starts with fueling active bodies. We believe that everyone deserves access to high quality food made with carefully considered ingredients. We believe in food that tastes good, food that promotes growth and development.

Feeding goodTM is our promise to you. We stand for food you can feel good about. No high fructose corn syrup. No artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. because our kids deserve nothing less.

By 2024, we will source only chicken certified by Global Animal Partnership (GAP) and require all chickens to be processed in a manner that avoids live-dumping and live-shackling, and instead utilizes a pre-shackle, multi-step controlled-atmosphere processing system that’s widely hailed as more humane.

our quality:

we are committed to the highest food safety and quality standards.

nutrition
education

To us, the front line of education is the lunch line. It's not just about serving healthy meals, it's about nurturing healthier habits. That's why we partner with best-in-class organizations to support our schools with nutrition education programs aimed at empowering students to make smarter eating decisions.

Our programming partnerships range from classroom instruction to off-campus, hands-on activities designed to encourage student interest and involvement in healthy eating.
