Our Menus

Our team is constantly working on recipes and new meals designed with your students in mind. We have deep roots in the communities we serve which is the reason every meal is designed to meet the likes of our local students.

We believe that the best way to create a functional food service model is to partner with your school from the beginning. Every school’s needs are different, and we are committed to creating a unique level of service that works best for you.

If you have a new and innovative idea for service or meals, we would love to collaborate with you.

 

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. Not only does it help students stay focused and engaged, but it also provides the energy they need to start their day.

Our roots are in school breakfast and we provide our schools with healthy, tasty and compliant breakfast menus. Your students deserve a variety of breakfast options that include hot meals. We are constantly working to provide new and exciting menu items.

Breakfast Service Model
Grab’n Go Breakfast

We provide the most efficient models available for breakfast service. Shelf-stable breakfast items are packaged in a sealed bag for easy distribution to students before school, in the classroom or during nutrition break.

IMPLEMENTATION STRATEGIES

Grab’n Go Before School

A typical school has students arriving as early as one hour before schools starts. Parents are rushing off to work and don’t have time to make breakfast. By serving breakfast before school you will make sure students get the right start to their day.

Implementation
  • Grab’n go breakfast meals are obtained from a table set up for distribution as students arrive onto campus.
  • A staff member takes counts and supervises meal distribution.
  • Students may eat their meal immediately or they can take it to class.
  • Students who are “not hungry” are encouraged to save their grab’n go breakfast in their backpack for later consumption.

 

Classroom Breakfast

Many logistical problems come to mind when considering Classroom Breakfast. Staffing? Cleanup? Class disruption? A combined effort of staff, teachers, custodians, and students have made Classroom Breakfast a success.

Implementation
  • STRATEGY 1: Service staff delivers and serves breakfast during the first 7-10 minutes of class while teachers are typically taking attendance.
  • STRATEGY 2: Student representatives obtain breakfast from the common eating area to deliver meals to class for distribution and consumption.
  • STRATEGY 3: Students obtain breakfast on the way to class.

 

Breakfast Break

Nutrition or snack break can be a great opportunity to serve breakfast. Grab’n go meals are designed for convenient and efficient meal distribution and can be served in approximately 5-10 minutes. 

Implementation
  • STRATEGY 1: Grab’n go breakfast meals are obtained from a table set up for distribution during nutrition break.
  • STRATEGY 2: Breakfast is delivered and distributed to students as they transition from classroom to nutrition break. 
  • STRATEGY 3: Breakfast Break can be an opportunity to serve “second-chance” meals for students who missed morning distribution.
  • STRATEGY 4: Unwanted breakfast items are deposited into a “share-basket” to be kept in the office and made available for students who are still hungry later in the day.

Lunch

With Better 4 You Meals, the school day just got better & healthier. Kids love to eat healthy food— but only if it tastes good. We deliver healthy options without sacrificing taste.

When asked what their favorite part of the school day is, most kids will say lunch. We use lunch as an opportunity to deliver meals kids choose to eat— to guide healthy choices and establish habits for healthy generations to come.

Menu Variety

Rarely repeating a hot featured entree on our menu within a single month, we create the variety needed so your students will not get bored with the menu. And when there’s an item that schools tell us they don’t like, we actually listen and work to replace it on the menu with a new item.

Popular Lunch Menu Options
  • Ground Turkey Nachos with Whole Grain Corn Chips
  • Chicken & Cheese Tamale with Mexican Style Corn
  • Baked Penne Pasta with Meat Sauce
  • Mexican Chicken Salad Tostadas

By offering free breakfast to all students, universal breakfast eliminates the stigma associated with economic status and increases participation in School Breakfast Programs.
