Dining Services for
Independent K-12 Schools
No matter how many meals students eat at school, parents know how important dining is to the student experience. Bring quality, dynamic dining to your students and staff.
Dining Services as
Unique as Your School
We want our meals to be inclusive for all diners. Whether it’s clearly labeling all dietary allergens, being mindful of religious dietary restrictions, or offering delicious meat-free options, we meet your student needs.
Central to our culinary approach is the seasonal, local sourcing of produce and animal proteins. Through our innovative direct-to-farm purchasing program FARMSTEAD™, our list of partnerships of 60+ privately owned family farms, co-ops and non-profit food hubs is always growing.
Don’t Forget About Parents
We got the answer straight from the source! Especially for younger students, parent input is crucial to a dining program’s success. We define direct and indirect communication channels for your students and parents to provide input.
Custom Dining Services
Dining programs aren’t one-size-fits-all. Here are just a few highlights of what you can expect from partnering with us.
