Our Difference

B4YM was not created to overhaul the school meal industry or impose our own values on kids.  Rather, B4YM focuses on the needs of the unique populations we serve. Simple as that.  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.


The B4YM Team knows schools and we know school meals. Many of our staff members have worked for public, charter, or private schools and they bring that everyday knowledge to our team and to the schools they serve. Our team has worked with hundreds of schools in implementing food programs that are successful and fully compliant with State and Federal standards. Not only do we provide nutritious meals, we assist schools with the implementation and execution of their food program. We also provide guidance for your compliance needs and questions.

Meal Cost

Our volume and reputation allow us to provide our clients with a meal price that is often well under the state and federal reimbursement rates. In many cases, this allows schools to assure their program does not incur overage costs or dip into their general fund to support the meal program. 

Source Better Products

We have a team who is focused on finding the best products on the market and transforming them into an enjoyable meal. 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.

Better Variety

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