Our Mission

Making wholesome food easily accessible helps everyone in the community, especially our children” Ruthie Burd, Founder

The Lunch Lady Foundation will help make nutritious food available to everyone by managing the preparation and delivery of healthy meals in communities across the country in cost-efficient and operationally effect ways.

Our Story

In 2013, Ruthie Burd, Founder of the Lunch Lady and the Lunch Lady Foundation, was involved with the Nourishing School Communities program, a federally funded multi-sector collaborative aimed to get more healthy and local foods into the minds and onto the plate of our school children.  It was during this engagement that Ruthie fully realized the power of bringing private sector, not-for-profit, and public partners to the table. “When we all work together towards a common goal, the benefits to the community are limitless” says Burd.  

With nearly 30 years of experience preparing and delivery health meals to schools and communities across the country through a network of dedicated commercial grade kitchens, the Lunch Lady knows how to effectively and efficiently  serve the community.  Leveraging this experience, expertise and a network of schools and community organizations, the foundation was established in 2018 and is dedicated to providing nourishing meals to those within our communities and those who need them.
