State guidelines and parental demands have created a need for healthier offerings from school food service providers. This is not a trend. Healthy eating in schools will continue to be optimized in the coming years. And we can help you practice what you teach.
In 2004, our organization alone was chosen to partner with the Connecticut State Department of Education in the development of a health snack program for state schools. Berkshire Food spearheaded a pilot program which resulted in 2006 revisions to snack food guidelines *. We are now cited by the state as a key resource for healthy snacks and are on the approved vendor list.
See our Healthy and Fresh Alternatives page for more information and access to our healthy snack product list. And if you want to complement this with some more indulgent items, Berkshire Food carries more than 2500 products to choose from. See our Healthy Snacks list here.
Whether you choose to sell snacks over-the-counter, or offer vending to enhance convenience for students and staff, Berkshire Food is your resource. We currently serve more than 50 school systems in Connecticut alone, and would welcome the opportunity to work with you.
