Learn About the Nutritious Meals Prepared by Revolution Foods

Rev Foods takes pride in creating kid-friendly meals of the highest quality. Their ingredients contain real cheese, rBST-free dairy products, whole muscle meats, unbleached flour, and fresh fruit – just to name a few! None of their meals contain high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients (that means no fake colors, sweeteners, flavors, or preservatives). They exceed the federal regulations set by the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act regarding sodium, trans fat, and sugar limits.



So no braunshcweiger or kottbullar??Shucks!

Why isn’t Evergreen Branch Library ever included in this program. There are a lot of kids and families that don’t have transportation and could walk there for lunch. I now for a fact that this area would also appreciate it as much as the other locations.

Evergreen has really good bus routes.They don't really need it close by, i guess.They can still get there pretty easily

please include Rose Garden Library

Please include Evergreen Library. Thank you.

Hi, we are a women's and children's resource center called Birth & Beyond/ Juan Diego Women's Center. Located at Alum Rock & White (12 North White Road, Suite #5 - down the breezeway between the Starbucks and the Pizza place). We help women at all stages of pregnancy and motherhood. We run an amazing Moms Group on Wednesdays- all are welcome, and please bring your little ones with you! We brought many clients and teens to the lunch last summer at the Alum Rock branch, and will do so again this summer. Call us for more details on our programs also- 100% free of course. And we would love to be a sponsor/ partner of this program. Thank you, Christine Ibanez . 331-444-5433
