My Green Lunch is a locally owned and family operated business founded with a specific mission, to provide a delicious, fresh, nutritious, economical, and environmentally sustainable lunch program to Silicon Valley schools.
My Green Lunch strives to source all of our food products (meats, dairy, fruits and vegetables) from sustainable family farms within a 250 mile radius of our commercial kitchen in Willow Glen. They offer multiple hot and cold entrees daily (meat & vegetarian), a seasonal organic fruit and vegetable. Families can select from at least (8) different options each day, ensuring that they have a wide variety of options that meet your child's specific tastes and preferences.
The foods provided are the same as you will find at Whole Foods, Sprouts, Trader Joe's, and your local farmers market where we shop each week. Brands you can trust such as Clover Stornetta, Diestel Turkey, Niman Ranch, Applegate, Earthbound Farm, Udi's, Sukhi's, Coleman Natural, Annie's, Organic Valley, and more.
