student lunches prepared exclusively for
At LoKL Gourmet, we believe that healthy eating habits should start at a young age. Unfortunately, the options presented in school cafeterias across the nation create an environment with little choice. Processed foods high in fat, sugar, and salt have become mainstays and create a negative impact on our children's health and overall development.
Our mission is to change the status quo. Our program empowers families to make informed food choices so that they can rest assured that their children are being provided with healthier options at school. Our commitment to responsibly sourcing our ingredients allows us to provide the freshest hand-crafted food available.
Together, with the help of our school lunch partners, we can provide our kids with something delicious and healthy while strengthening our local economy and contributing to a vibrant community.
A MESSAGE TO PARENTS
IMAGINE a MENU...
that uses locally-sourced and organic ingredients wherever possible.
where fruits and veggies on the Organic Consumer Association's "dirty dozen" list are always organic.
that sources local, pasture-raised meats from Virginia, and organic dairy from Trickling Springs Creamery in Pennsylvania.
where all sauces, dips, and baked goods are made in house using simple, wholesome ingredients
where there are no preservatives, high-fructose corn syrups, or colorings of any kind.
If our kids can't pronounce it, we won't use it in our recipes. This is the kind of food that we as parents hope our children eat at school, and this is exactly how we design our student and teacher menus.
HEALTHY AND AFFORDABLE
We believe that all students deserve a wholesome and healthy lunch, and we hope to make that option affordable for everyone. We are working hard with dozens of local farmers, butchers, creameries, and bakeries, to ensure that we are sourcing the highest-quality local ingredients available, and at prices that won't break the bank. This year, we are pleased to announce our individually packaged lunches are priced at $6.50/meal.
*Although we use only certified gluten-free ingredients in our gluten-free lunches, LoKL Gourmet is not a gluten-free facility.*
