Onsite Express Meals

Real Meals™ are made in your cafeteria; they are what you serve your young customers each and every day. However, we are also introducing Real Meals Express, which is our new grab-and-go meal concept at both the elementary and secondary levels. Complete with colorful, engaging signage, our express meals give students a fresh, convenient option for lunch on the go.

Delivered Meals

Our Real Meals™ let the wholesome ingredients that they are prepared from shine through. They are produced using traditional cooking methods without the use of artificial substances. All meals are prepared fresh in our FDA- and USDA-approved facilities, packaged with beautifully branded labels for appeal, and delivered safely in temperature-controlled vehicles to maintain the highest level of quality and service to those locations requiring off-site meal support.

Whether our team prepares Real Meals fresh onsite to serve your students or we prepare Real Meals in one of our state-of-the-art culinary centers and deliver them to your students, our fresh approach is your real solution for wholesome and delicious meals for our nation’s youth.
