As providers of a wide range of customized dining services to public, private and charter schools throughout the Northeast, our Simply Rooted® approach to school lunch has enabled us to get to the heart of what matters: serving wholesome, great tasting food while teaching your students to make nutritious meal and snack choices.
Our School Nutrition Services

- Wholesome ingredients prepared fresh from scratch as often as possible, with a focus on whole grains, fresh produce, lean meats and healthy snacks.
- Designing menus in accordance with NSBP and NSLP guidelines—exceeding federal, state and client-level requirements.

- Award-winning Nutrition Safari® and Fooditude Fuel nutrition education programs that help teach students the value of lifelong healthy eating habits.
- Providing high quality catering services, ranging from basic breakfast meetings and after school activities to upscale board dinners and community events.
