Aramark will partner with Excelsior Springs School District as they make improvements to program including upcoming kitchen renovations.

Excelsior Springs School District has selected Aramark as the district’s new food service provider.  The district cited Aramark’s commitment to improving the food offerings, specifically the addition of made-to-order options, as one of the many reasons they awarded the contract.

Aramark is committed to providing community engagement in health and wellness via the Healthy For Life™ program.  The program strives to create healthy school environments with nutritious menus, wellness education, parental resources, and materials for school events.  Healthy For Life™ brings education to teachers, administrators, parents and students alike in an effort to insure children are equipped to lead healthy lifestyles beyond the cafeteria.  
Student menus have been developed by Aramark dietitians and chefs to not only meet the governmental guidelines set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), but also to provide variety in offerings.  The menus incorporate low-fat options, whole grains, reduced sugars and salts, lean proteins, 100 percent fruit juices with no added sugars, and a variety of fruits and vegetables encompassing the color spectrum. 

In addition to selecting a new food service provider, Excelsior Springs School District plans to improve the dining environment for its students.  These improvements include the remodeling of the high school kitchen facilities.  Plans are already in the works to begin the remodeling project.  
Dr. Jaret Tomlinson, Deputy Superintendent of Excelsior Springs School District had the following to say about the new food service partnership, “Aramark was the committee's top choice when we looked at food quality, innovative ideas for involving students in the menu design, and the best financial package for the district.  We're excited to partner with Aramark to make our food service program something that kids look forward to each and every day."
