Who We Are

Helping Kids Learn to Love REAL Food

“Eat REAL’s partnership and support model is the best example of integrated and collaborative impact that I’ve seen.”
Nick Anicich, Farm to School Program Lead, California Department of Food and Agriculture, Office of Farm to Fork

The largest fast food restaurant chain in the United States is our public school system. Eat REAL is a nonprofit organization on a mission to fix this.

Eat REAL empowers school district food service leaders to make improvements and inspires students, schools, parents, and communities in their real food journeys.

What if food in schools was delicious and it nourished our kids so they could reach their full potential?

Why We're Here

We help kids learn to love real food, for the well-being of people and our planet.

Vision
We envision a future where kids, schools, and communities are thriving in a healthy food system.

Mission
We empower school districts to make food delicious, nourishing, and responsible through our evidence-based certification program. We provide education and support that inspires students, schools, and communities to value real food.

What We Do

Eat REAL’s program presents a higher standard and certification that guides school districts on their journeys to improve food in schools. We offer direct support to our school district partners because they are the change makers in this movement. Together, we build awareness around the power of real food to create a healthier tomorrow.
