and wellness group

We simplify the National School Lunch Program.

We recognize the challenges school administrators face – a limited budget and a small staff, to name a few. Managing the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) and the Child and Adult Food Care Program (CACFP) shouldn’t be another burden. We help administer these programs and find healthy, affordable vendors to serve your students meals they will enjoy

 

School Food and Wellness Group helps school administrators focus on what they do best: educating and helping to raise our nation’s children. Our clients include single and multi-site charter schools, charter management organizations, private schools and after-school programs.

how it works

Every school has a different model when it comes to facility, logistics and space. We partner with all varieties of schools, and can help find the best way to set up a successful meal program through conducting a Request for Proposal for meal service. 

PRE-PACKAGED MEALS

No kitchen? No problem! There are many food vendors who offer a pre-packaged, cooked off-site meal service, for schools with no kitchen facilities. The meals come perfectly portioned, HOT and ready to serve. 

WARMING SITE

Have space for equipment but no kitchen? Problem solved. We assist schools with purchasing proper refrigeration, re-therm ovens, warming cabinets and hand sinks to be able to receive cold food and cook it to a safe temperature. 

FULL KITCHEN ON SITE

Have kitchen, need cooks? At your service. We help schools find the perfect Food Service Management Company to bring their healthy, compliant recipes, food and employees to your kitchen. We say, leave it to the experts when it comes to food. 

BOTTOM LINE

Our goal is to help schools administer these federal programs so that at-risk students have full access to healthy meals. No child should go hungry and every child deserves nutritious, warm meals. Contact us today for a free consultation on our program, and let us assess your needs.
