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.
