healthy school lunches | exceptional customer service | serving the NY Metro area
Cater To You Food Service is the premier on-site school dining company offering full food-service lunch programs to private (independant) schools in the New York Metro area including New Jersey, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut. Based in Manhattan, we serve more than 14,000 K-12 students daily.
We believe that simple, tasty foods are best. Our chefs cook from scratch, with fresh, sustainably-sourced and better-for-you ingredients, providing balanced nourishment. We provide our culinarians with components that not only taste great, but are as clean as possible.
Our premium ingredients come from trusted suppliers, farms, and manufacturers that use healthy, sustainable practices and have been vetted by us. A few of our standards include: seasonal and locally-sourced produce; No Antibiotics Ever (NAE) in our animal proteins and 100% vegetarian fed; certified-humane and pasture-raised eggs from hens that roam freely and forage outside; and milk without growth hormones (rBST), pesticides, or insecticides.
Menus at each of our independent schools change every day and no two are the same. Like the curricula and legacies of the schools we serve, our menus and recipes are unique and customized, as we know that no two school communities share the exact same preferences, demographics, or budget.
WHAT SETS US APART
We provide our chefs with components that not only taste great, but are as clean as possible. We devote a lot of time and effort into sourcing and procuring the products we use in our kitchens. Our chefs have the freedom to create meals as long as they adhere to our whole foods, from-scratch approach utilizing peak season produce.
