We are now serving over 2 million school meals a week in 14 states and have a fast-growing line of products on retail shelves across the country. We focus on enabling access to healthy, delicious, affordable meals for families and over 50% of the meals we serve in schools are served to low-income students who rely on these meals as a primary source of nutrition. Revolution Foods believes in wrapping around students and families all day to provide great nutrition and as a result serves not only pre K- 12 schools but also Boys & Girls Clubs, YMCAs and summer community programs. Integral to our success is a deep commitment to nutrition, childhood education and sustainable supply chains—things we all care a great deal about.
