No child should go hungry.
Every child deserves warm, nutritious meals.
Our mission is to help schools administer federal meal programs to bring healthy meals to at-risk students.
School Food and Wellness Group is a full-service child nutrition consulting firm aimed at providing comprehensive professional services for both the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and Afterschool (Supper) Program. SFW Group currently partners with over 300 schools across the U.S., ensuring over 100,000 students receive healthy meals on a daily basis. We have all of the tools necessary to support school districts, single and multi-site charters, charter management organizations (CMOs), private schools, and after-school non-profit programs.
SFW Group’s dedication to bridging the gap between schools and state agencies has resulted in a positive track record among the various industry groups. Our team of consultants have extensive knowledge of procedures and best practices, and attend state and USDA training seminars on a routine basis. As a result, we have helped our clients successfully complete state administrative reviews since 2014 without discovering any significant financial deficiencies. SFW Group is a goal-oriented organization aimed at delivering professional service, developing and sustaining business relationships, and investing in our clients' futures.
