Milburn, OK: Starting in August, a new menu with fresh, healthy meal options is available at Hobart Public Schools, thanks to a newly announced partnership between the school district and Keystone Food Service.

Keystone Food Service focuses on providing freshly prepared breakfast and lunch options for the students it serves. The Oklahoma-based and family-owned company serves over 50,000 students daily and has been selected as the cafeteria vendor for Milburn Public Schools.

Lunch always will include a full salad bar, stocked daily with fresh fruits and vegetables. Students are allowed to eat from the salad bar at no additional charge to their lunch price.

"Kids who eat balanced and nutritious meals do better in school. Research clearly shows that, so we take our role in helping Milburn students achieve at the highest levels very seriously," said Josh Sanders, CEO of Keystone Food Service. “We are grateful to the Milburn school board and the administration for their willingness to try something new to benefit the kids they serve.”

Some of the menu options students can expect include freshly made lasagna, pulled pork sandwiches, chicken enchiladas, and yogurt parfaits. Nutritious offerings like fresh steamed vegetables will accompany main courses.

“Our goal is to provide healthy meals that kids will eat and enjoy and we know that variety is key to that," Sanders said. “We listen to students and parents in the schools we serve and we're always introducing new foods throughout the school year."

Keystone got its start providing meal service at fraternity and sorority houses on college campuses in Norman, OK and Stillwater, OK. Its operations have steadily grown, and this school year it is serving more than 140 school districts in Oklahoma and Kansas.
