WHAT OUR PARTNERS SAY…<br />Our students deserve healthy, wholesome food to help them become the leaders we need for the challenges of the future.  (Revolution Foods) is service and quality oriented.  They are fresh, creative and forward thinking!<br />-Gail Ahlas, Superintendent Roseland School District, Roseland, CA<br />I love what you guys are doing.<br />- Sam Kass, Obama Family Chef<br />Students have been complaining about their school lunches for a long time and now we have a new company Revolution Foods, my question is ‘What took so long?’<br />-Leonardo Contrais, Student- DCPS Wilson HS<br />
  28. 28. IMPACT <br />As a school in the inner city, our goal is to change the community through making college a viable option..preparing our scholars for the top 100 colleges and universities. I feel Revolution Foods supports this goal by providing our scholars with healthy food options on a daily basis. Because  of the increase in fresh fruit and vegetables, our young scholars have shown an improvement in behavior and academics. In addition, not only is the food nutritious but also very tasty.<br /> -Glenetta Pope, Lou Dantzler Elementary School, Los Angeles, CA<br />At KIPP DC: LEAP Academy, our mission is to put our students on the path to college by providing them with an excellent education and a nurturing environment to develop within.  Revolution Foods helps us achieve our mission each and every day by providing our students with healthy breakfasts, lunches and snacks!  Our students are developing healthy eating habits and positive food choices from the age of three, ensuring that their bodies are being nurtured and developed right along with their brains.  Thank you Revolution Foods for being a part of our team and family!<br />-Laura Bowen; Principal at KIPP DC: LEAP Academy, Washington D.C.<br />Revolution Foods has dramatically changed the way our students eat at school!  Now, instead of junk full of fat and useless calories, our students eat healthy and wholesome meals complete with fruits and vegetables.  They are certainly leading the revolution to transform the health of children and youth at Lighthouse.  <br />-Jenna Stauffer, Director of Strategic Development of Lighthouse Community Charter Public Schools, Oakland, CA<br />
