CEO Emily Green tells me her company is focused on about 360 schools, daycare centers and day-camps in the Boston area that can’t offer an on-site lunch service. She says Smart Lunches provides thousands of lunches each month.
Green says Smart Lunches provides nutritious lunches that parents would want to pack themselves for their children, if they had time. She says fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grains are part of the meals they provide.
Green says her company recently purchased Smart Snacks, a company that fills school vending machines with better quality products.
Green says, “vending machines can carry good stuff to eat, too.” She says her company can now provide children with healthy food options all day long.
