Food 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”.


“Bring it on!”
Healthy food provides our children with the energy, focus and attitude to succeed during their time at school.
