Family-Style Service

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 has joined forces with Vetri Community Partnership's Eatiquette Program. This program brings fresh, nutritious, from-scratch meals to lunchrooms across the region.

  • Lintons was able to increase the level of quality of the food served in our buildings without increasing our expenses. Though higher quality food and better marketing, the Lintons/KIPP partnership led to increased food consumption. Lintons also helps us to think about our operational practices, ensuring compliance with NSLP regulations.

  • Lintons cooks all meals on-site and provides students and staff with healthy, tasty meals. Our staff never ate the meals provided prior to Lintons. Lintons also made sure we can meet our environmental mission by serving meals on reusable plates, serving vegetarian meals twice a week, and sourcing food locally when possible.

  • Our patient family dinner was over around 6:30 and cleanup was underway. About 7pm, a family from Washington, D.C. (at least two hours away) who had fought high winds restrictions on the Bay Bridge and other bad weather showed up to see their loved one. They had been lost at least once and were hungry, tired, and upset because they had missed the party. Your manager took it upon herself, without prompting, to go and start preparing more food for this family so they would have something to eat.

  • Lintons presented themselves as a very professional and well-organized company that was focused on excellent customer service. Once we started working with the Lintons team, it was obvious that their goal was to build a strong, healthy working relationship with our staff. The transition between our old food service provider and the Lintons team could not have gone smoother. From day one, Lintons' management team has been a pleasure to work with, they bend over backward.
