TastyFood is meant to be enjoyed. Every kid knows that. Our goal is to make sure that whatever meal we put in front of our students isn’t just good for them but is also a great experience. Long ago we realized that the best way to ensure that we serve great tasting food is to ask our students what they like to eat. In fact, every meal that is served by Preferred Meals has been student taste tested and ultimately “Student Approved”.

SafePreferred Meals serves over 70 million meals a year. School Districts and organizations throughout the country depend on us to ensure that every one of these meals are prepared and delivered with safety as an utmost priority.
With Preferred, everything has changed for the better. The students in both the middle and high school are eating the meals and they like them. The teachers have told me that they have seen performance improvement in the classroom because students aren’t hungry. In just over two months we have seen meal enrollment more than double the amount from last year with the previous provider.”- Justin Samples, Food Service Director, Maya Angelou Public Charter School, Washington D.C.
