EVOS has announced that it will continue to expand its EVOS Healthy Kids Lunch Program at public and private schools in all of its markets this school year.
Launched two years ago, the chain expects to double the number of healthy lunches served in the first three months of this school year, offering affordable alternatives to high-calorie, high-fat cafeteria fare. EVOS' lunch program includes menu staples such as steakburgers and hot dogs made from naturally-raised beef; hormone-free, airbaked chicken strips, and new vegetarian hot dogs.
"The success of the EVOS Healthy Kids Program illustrates just how much parents value the opportunity to play an active role in the nutritional well-being of their children, not only at home but also when the school bell rings," said Jackie Macaluso, director of marketing and community ambassador at EVOS. "Good nutrition creates great students and is more important than ever in making sure they succeed."
EVOS has taken the hassle out of ordering this year, as well. Parents can select and purchase their child's favorite EVOS fare through online ordering, made available to all participating schools.
"We know schools are struggling to provide the healthiest nutritional options but with constant budget concerns truly healthy alternatives can often be cost-prohibitive," said Macaluso. "That's why the Healthy Kids Lunch Program is the perfect, turn-key solution that offers cost-effective, new alternatives for parents and students all at no cost to participating schools."
As an added bonus, a portion of each lunchbox sale is donated back to the school from which it was purchased helping them meet their unique fundraising milestones.
