Focus on the Students, We’ll Do the Rest

Many school districts find they can reach a level they didn’t know was possible, when they are freed from facilities management and food service to focus on their students and academics.

Reach a Level You Didn’t Know Was Possible

We are passionate about education, but we’ll let our work in food service and facilities management for schools, and our 53 years of experience speak for itself. 

"It boiled down to wanting work done better, faster, and for less money. We’ve gotten more work done, better than ever before, and for a very fair price." 
- Dr. Stephen Kleinsmith, Superintendent, Nixa Schools

Get Students Eating with Delicious Recipes

What happens when you get students eating healthy, varied food with Sodexo food and nutrition services? You decrease hunger, fuel growing bodies and learning minds, increase food sales and government reimbursements, decrease food waste, and save costs on ingredients and disposal.

Straight from the Superintendent:
“Prior to Sodexo we were throwing away 75% of the food we prepared per day. Last year, we went from planning employee cuts, to serving 4000+ more lunches each week and hiring 30 more people this year.”  
- Paul Puletti, Superintendent, Hendry County, FL

Straight from the Principal:
“Our students are happier. More of our students are eating. Last year we were serving 500 meals a day, now we’re serving over 700, because now they like the food.” 
- Roberto Sanchez, Principal, Hendry County, FL

Straight from the Student:
“It’s a lot better than last year. It’s extremely improved. I like it.”
- James Easterwood, Student, Hendry County, FL

Straight from the Server:
“We’ve been doing it the same way for 15 years. Sodexo came in with new recipes. The students love it. We’re not seeing any food thrown away. That’s the best part about it—the students.”
- Carol Rivers, Food Service Worker, Hendry County, FL
