It’s possible to transform school food
School Food Focus is the national collaborative that ignites change in our food system by working on both the demand and supply sides of school food. Together, we’re changing the way school food is produced and purchased so that every child in the U.S. — regardless of income or race — has access to delicious, nutritious school meals.
All children deserve healthy school meals
More than 31 million children rely on public school meals for their daily nutrition. For many, school meals are their only source of healthy food. Yet, our school food system is significantly under-resourced and far too dependent on highly processed, cheap food.
We use purchasing power to ignite change
We collaborate across the supply chain to leverage school purchasing power and increase the production of healthy food choices. In this way, we’re reimagining school meals to support the health of our children, our local economies and our environment.
We’ve inspired 60 healthy school food products
Working with school districts and food suppliers, we’ve helped reformulate and create new nutritious products for school purchase — from poultry raised with responsible antibiotic use to a more wholesome bean burrito.
We’re reinventing school meals from coast to coast
