Nutritious and Delicious, focus on fresh-from-scratch

Superior FoodBalanced Nutrition:

At SFE, our goal is to help every student reach their highest potential—by ensuring they are fueled to learn! We know that the food we serve your students will directly impact how well they pay attention in class and achieve their academic goals.

That’s why we prioritize balanced nutrition, as our SFE district chefs design your custom menus. Working hand-in-hand with our registered dietitians, in fact, our chefs create menus that not only meet, but exceed the nutrient requirements for your students to grow properly.

In addition, our team handles special dietary needs and allergens with extreme care.* Partnering closely with our district clients and school nurses, we always provide thorough nutrition and ingredient information to assist in the management of students with allergies and special diets.

Superior FoodFlavor and Visual Appeal:

But we also know that students are much more likely to eat what they actually like. So, SFE has focused on creating menus that are not only carefully balanced and nutritionist-approved—but also delicious:

  • Over 75% of our entrees are made fresh-from-scratch
  • We seek out the best ingredients, sourcing locally whenever possible
  • We season with herbs and spices to dial the flavor up without all the sodium
  • We offer the widest variety of fruits and vegetables of any provider, including up to 15 items on our salad bars

And one more thing: We present every meal so that it looks as delicious as it tastes. That’s because we know that eating is a whole experience, and visual appeal matters. We want every student to be excited to eat at school every day—and nourished to learn.

“We were so used to getting prepackaged foods. But the chefs of SFE came in with so much fresh produce and scratch-cooking for our students… On a scale of 1 to 10, I would give SFE a 10.”
