Commitment to Quality Meals

We honor our commitment to the standards and initiatives of the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), placing students on a path of a healthier and more food conscience future.

Our Story

Founded In 2011, Better 4 You Meals is the direct product of local California school leaders listening to the voices of their very own students and parents who wanted “better” food at their schools. After years of unsuccessfully working with existing meal vendors to improve meals and student participation, our founders decided to become part of the solution and offer a new option for school meals.

We have no predefined values about food that we try and impose on schools.  We do not jump on the latest food craze and shock students with unfamiliar food they cannot pronounce and most likely will not eat. 

We believe that we can be a partner to schools across California in helping to alleviate some of the issues associated with food insecurities and poor nutrition.

 

Quality Products

We work with local vendors, farmers and growers to provide schools with fresh foods and fruits daily while meeting all the USDA and California State regulations.

Meal Cost

We provide our partner schools with a meal price that is often well under the state and federal reimbursement rates to help reduce overage costs from supporting the meal program.

Menu Variety

We understand that students can become uninterested in the same meals over and over. As such, we work hard to ensure we offer a menu with a large variety that still includes their favorite items.

Our Difference

Better 4 You Meals was not created to overhaul the school meal industry or impose our own values on kids. We focus on the needs of the unique populations we serve. We realize that each school and community is different, and we want to support your organization by offering a variety of menu offerings and programming to increase participation, save your school money and assist in meeting compliance standards.
