Life Time And Done Right Food Bring Healthy Lunches To More Than 20 Metro Area Schools

Stocks in this article: LTM

As students return from summer break and hit the books across the Twin Cities, many will be enjoying healthier lunches this school year.

Through a collaborative effort between the Life Time Foundation and Done Right Food, a food services company that dishes up almost 8,000 daily meals to metro area students, more than 20 schools now will offer a new lunch menu free of high-fructose corn syrup; bleached flour; artificial preservatives, sweeteners and colors; trans fats and hydrogenated oils; no added hormones or antibiotics in beef, and where possible, the same in other animal products.

On behalf of each participating school, the Life Time Foundation covers the food cost difference between the old menu and that required for the new, healthier menu.

In advocating for improved lunches, the Life Time Foundation’s focus is to ensure students continue to enjoy the foods they love while eliminating certain ingredients and, instead, providing healthy, more natural alternatives that contribute to a healthy way of life. The Life Time Foundation also works directly with schools to provide students, parents and teachers with healthy eating resources that encourage healthy decisions at school, home and elsewhere.

“Done Right Food’s commitment to provide healthy lunches aligns with our primary mission to improve children’s nutrition,” said James McGuire, Life Time Foundation Director of Operations. “Through this relationship, we are proud to further expand the number of schools making positive nutrition changes and, by extension, help many more children establish healthy eating habits for the future.”

“We started Done Right Food in 2007 with a goal to provide wholesome school food, while teaching a healthy message to students,” said Mary Hunn, CEO and registered dietitian, Done Right Food Services, Inc. “The Life Time Foundation’s generous support of the schools we cater allows us to take our commitment to provide nutritionally healthy meals to an entirely new level.”
