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!

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!
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. In 2018, we started consulting globally working with a variety of ethnic cuisines, so help is never too far away!
Our consulting services include:
You have questions, we have answers. Let’s talk
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
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.
As part of the Culinary Institute of America’s (CIA) Healthy Kids Collaborative, SNP partnered with Northarvest Bean Grower Association to create school recipes using dried and canned beans.
Students had the opportunity to sample our black bean hummus with green pepper triangles, sweet potato and red kidney bean chili, and chicken chili verde with Great Northern white beans. The chicken chili verde knocked it out of the park- students requested seconds... [more]
California is now the world’s fifth largest economy. Despite this concentration of wealth, we have the highest child poverty rate in the nation. In many impoverished neighborhoods, there’s been significant effort to change public education in hopes of empowering and elevating the community. California’s Charter Schools Act of 1992 authorized charter schools as part of the state’s public education, establishing their intention to “provide opportunities” and “increase pupil learning.”.
However, the legislation exempts charter schools from... [more]
