We work very closely with each community we serve to provide innovative, nutritious school breakfast and lunch programs that are customized to meet their specific needs. Our company owners and executive team directly support each community’s goals, working with and empowering our on site teams to successfully achieve the program goals on which we have collaborated.


The results speak for themselves; the students we serve provide positive feedback about the food variety, nutrition and quality and our programs experience increases in participation in our first year of service, which are sustained or increased in subsequent years. More importantly, we integrate ourselves into each community, nurturing their needs and becoming partners in their success.
