Our Mission:
Ensure that school food professionals have the resources, funding and support they need to provide fresh, healthy, delicious, cook from scratch meals that support the health of children and our planet.

Our Vision:
All children have equal access to fresh, healthy, delicious food providing them the foundation to thrive and meet their true potential.

Our story begins with a sad fact: millions of children across the country have a myriad of long-term nutritional issues, such as obesity and diabetes. Sadly, the food served in schools is often heavily processed and lacks fresh fruits and vegetables. Many children do not have the choice to bring their own lunch, but fall below the poverty line and rely on free and reduced-price lunches—they eat school food because they have to.

We believe that healthy food has the power to change children’s lives.
