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.
