Learning is tough work. Children need healthy daily meals to fuel their developing brains for activities in the classroom. That's why President John F. Kennedy created National School Lunch Week in 1962: to celebrate the vital role school lunches play in supporting education. For many kids, school meals may be the only time they eat, extending the impact of this program beyond schools and into communities.
We understand that creating a variety of delicious and balanced meals is not a task for the faint of heart. Especially now when labor is scarce, supply chain disruptions continue to impact menu plans and it’s even more challenging to create meals kids enjoy while meeting nutrition requirements. But if we’ve learned anything from serving customers like you, it’s that you will find a way.
We’re here to help you execute a Peace, Love & School Lunch, and beyond, with products, resources and culinary expertise. Keep us in mind if you need lunchtime inspiration, product information or are interested in pivoting to something new.
