We’ve got lunch in the bag.

At School Nutrition Plus, we understand everything there is to know about the National School Meal programs – so you don’t have to.  Our experienced team of consultants, dietitians and chefs take care of every detail, giving you time to focus on what matters most: education.

Did we mention our food?  We’re talking delicious, healthy and nutritious meals designed and prepared by our in-house chefs.  (Yes, chefs!)  It’s school lunch, foodie style!

Whatever your school needs – from simple consulting to a full blown catering solution, SNP can help.  We’ve got it in the bag!

People are talking about SNP

“Our facilities don’t have a kitchen, but with SNP, we’re still able to provide our students with great food. Plus we love their scratch cooking options and Farm to School program.”

BLD, Meet SNP.

SNP has BLD covered – breakfast, lunch, dinner (and snacks too). We are a full-service caterer specializing in the unique needs of charter schools. Don’t have a kitchen on site? No worries – we can deliver delicious meals we prepare offsite. Have a kitchen and need it staffed soup to nuts? We can do that, too.

Led by Le Cordon Bleu-trained Executive Chef Brandon Neumen, our chefs prepare nutritious and appetizing meals from scratch. Whether you choose an onsite or offsite solution, your students and teachers will love what our team of chefs prepare. Our “Fresh Picked” program supports local farmers and vendors by delivering food straight from the farm to the school. Every meal includes a serving of fruit and vegetables, and we offer vegetarian and ethnic cuisine menu options, too.

Delicious food made simple? Now you’re cooking!

CONSULTING

Let’s face it: The National School Meal program isn’t easy.  Remaining compliant is a challenging exercise in and of itself, without  factoring in the new guidelines and legislation that comes out every year.

That’s why so many schools put their trust in SNP.  With managers who have more than 35 combined years of experience in school meal programs, we help you navigate the labyrinth of the NSLP.  SNP serves as your guide, steering you through the pitfalls (like audits) ensuring you get through safely.

Our consulting services include:

  • Starting up a school meal program
  • USDA audit assistance
  • Operational analysis of your foodservice program
  • Menu planning for the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act
  • Procurement of computerized point-of-sale systems
  • Staff training
  • Food safety inspections
  • Customized solutions related to your food program

You have questions, we have answers. Let’s talk

OUR FOOD

Healthy? Check.  NSLP compliant?  That too.  Delicious?  You bet! At SNP, we turn the concept of cafeteria food on its head, with scratch cooking, farm-to-table ingredients, and original recipes that will make your students say, “Yum!” Check out a sample menu

OUR STORY

There are all sorts of reasons people start a business.  For SNP founder Emily Burson, it was all about service.  

As a Food Service Director for one of the most prominent food service companies in the world, Emily loved her work.  But she discovered that the large size of the organization meant she couldn’t deliver the type of one-on-one service she believed her clients deserved.

What if she could provide a boutique level of attention to clients, combined with the kind of farm-to-table cooking she was passionate about?  She took the leap and School Nutrition Plus was born.

Today, with business partner and executive chef Brandon Neumen on board, SNP makes and serves more than a million meals a year and delivers the kind of one-on-one service that Emily and Brandon believe every account deserves.  It’s the “Plus” that makes SNP much more than just school nutrition.
