LUNCH DELIVERY

Kinder Meals

Founded in Vancouver, our team aims to improve the eating habits of Canadian children with our healthy meal choices that offer significant health benefits and a positive impact on the environment. We strongly believe that schools are able to raise money without sacrificing children’s health. Let’s bring Kindermeals to your school to prove it together!

Feed Me Fit

Every kid deserves a healthy start. Healthy eating habits that will last a lifetime and ensure learning is not hindered by a lack of access to good food. When it comes to school lunches, I am happy to report that times are slowly changing. It is encouraging to see schools realizing the importance of serving vegan options every day. Let’s hope the number of schools doing so continues to rise to ensure our children are being served nutritious and plant-based meals at school.

Through Forward Food, foodservice directors, major corporations, restaurant chains, chefs, dietitians and NGOs are using plant-based foods to grow a healthier, more sustainable food system. We’re preventing cancer, diabetes, and heart disease. We’re tackling obesity, reducing greenhouse gas emissions and conserving water. We’re transforming our schools, restaurant menus, grocery aisles, hospitals, correctional facilities, military bases, and more. Together, we are bringing food forward.
