Rev­o­lu­tion Foods’ aim is to dra­mat­i­cal­ly trans­form school lunch and close the access gap to healthy food for mil­lions of low-income chil­dren in Amer­i­ca. 70% of the meals served by Rev­o­lu­tion Foods are for chil­dren enrolled in the free- or reduced-price lunch­es (FRL) pro­gramme, which serves chil­dren liv­ing at or just above the fed­er­al pover­ty line. The menus are spe­cial­ly pre­pared by nutri­tion­ists to be appeal­ing to kids, do not have any processed foods, trans-fats, or addi­tives, and include rec­om­mend­ed dai­ly serv­ings of fresh fruit and vegetables.
