Nutrition

Everyday fresh, healthy, quality meals made from scratch.

In our schools we prepare over 11,000 meals daily for students ranging from preschool children to high school seniors. Meals are always created on-site, from scratch, using the finest products. Our commitment is to provide traceable, local and sustainable meals with a focus on seasonality.
 

We recognize the importance of the local food community.

Our Farm to School program is committed to providing our schools with ingredients that are locally sourced, sustainable and traceable. We procure seasonal fruits and vegetables, eggs, dairy products, legumes and cider from NY, NJ, CT & PA farms.

Local not only includes our network of farms, but we also appreciate your school's community, whether that means buying bread from a bakery around the corner or exploring neighborhood specialty foods.
 

Nutrition at Immaculate Heart Academy

Immaculate Heart Academy has partnered with Cater To You as the food service provider to create daily meals that focus on optimal nutritional impact for the community. Meals are centered on  a wide variety of protein sources both animal and plant based, whole grains, legumes, dairy foods, healthy fats, and the freshest of fruits and vegetables.

Menus are developed monthly to reflect seasonal availability, holidays and the special needs of The Immaculate Heart community.
