Sodexo supports student engagement and improves the Quality of Life for the entire Schools community. By focusing on Quality of Life services, we reinforce the overall experience of a student’s educational journey. – Steve Dunmore, President Sodexo Education – Schools

Dear Students and Parents,

Sodexo supports student engagement and improves the Quality of Life for the entire Schools community. As part of our commitment to enhancing Quality of Life for the clients, students and communities we serve, we invite you to view the newly redesigned content on Lift-Off!’s Playground. Lift-Off!’s Playground provides easy to navigate online content for students and families around nutrition, fitness and overall healthy living. 

Look on the site for the Monthly Fresh Pick. The Sodexo Fresh Pick program is designed to further the nutrition education of students, parents and educators by focusing on the many positive benefits of eating more fruits, vegetables and whole grains. Each month features an instructional recipe video starring Sodexo Ambassador and Student Chef, Chef Remmi, using the Fresh Pick nutritional item of the month. 

While you are visiting with Lift-Off!, don’t forget to check out our series of healthy cooking videos with Sodexo National Director of Wellness, Roxanne Moore, RDN. Throughout the videos, students talk about why each recipe is healthy. Many of the recipes were adapted from the Share Our Strength Cooking Matters program, the Gluten Intolerance Group or Sodexo and are designed to be kid-friendly.

Thank you for taking the time to visit our website. Please email us anytime with questions, comments or suggestions about how we can improve your students’ experience.

Hello Napa Valley Community!

Welcome back to a new school year!

September brings our favorite Gowan apples back to our students.  We are featuring Graveinstein and McIntosh apples on our garden bars this month.  These juicy and sweet apples are gown in Philo, CA.  Click here to learn more about these fabulous apples.  

We are also featuring delicious local plums & nectarines from HMC Farms in Kingsburg, CA.  Learn more about HMC Farms here.   Our great partners with the Harvest of the Month program are also featuring HMC Farms with grapes in their classroom tasting kits.

Middle and high school students have some new, made from scratch menu items for lunch.  Some of these new offerings include Kung Pau Chicken & Chile Verde, recipes courtesy of the Center for Ecoliteracy.  They will also enjoy an old favorite like cheddar & broccoli loaded baked potatoes and home-made bean & cheese enchiladas.  Our new sub rolls are baked fresh in house, as well as our pizzas with home-made pizza sauce.
