Variety of Shelf-Stable Meals:

Our resources enable us to provide a wide array of packages that are designed for a particular purpose in mind such as the kid friendly meal kits that meet federal reimbursement guidelines for Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) and Summer Feeding Meal Programs.
