Our children deserve a sound nutritional foundation so that they can grow, learn, and thrive. School lunch is an amazing opportunity to ensure students are eating nutritious foods and developing their food literacy skills so that they are empowered to make healthy, responsible choices throughout their lives. To give students this lifelong foundation, Lintons Food Service Management has joined forces with Vetri Community Partnership's Eatiquette Program. This school lunch program brings fresh, nutritious, from-scratch meals to lunchrooms across the region.
Lintons is proud to partner with Food Fit Philly and Riverview Home. Food Fit Philly is a City of Philadelphia initiative with a mission to provide its residents with the educational tools they need for a healthy, active, and smoke-free lifestyle. Lintons' Corporate Dietitian Andrea McHugh and Food Fit Philly collaborated to achieve this goal.
Lintons' Community Works Program has partnered with Merakey to provide supported employment opportunities for individuals with intellectual developmental disabilities in Lintons facilities. This program, now in its 15th year, assists in developing job-related and interpersonal skills for these individuals while contributing to the daily needs of the facility. The focus is on finding a position that meets their interests, needs, and capabilities.
