Local schools that serve good lunches

A friend at a local charter school is trying to upgrade the lunches served to the students. Are there any local schools with a particularly good hot lunch program? (I know about the salad bar available in SM/Malibu schools). I am interested in public, charter, or private. Thanks. She needs menu ideas and tours.

  1. My daughter just started at Marymount in Rancho Palos Verdes. She said the food has been excellent. It is catered by a local company.

    1. Stay clear of LA Unified. That food is not edible.

      1. Harvard-Westlake's cafeterias do a pretty good job of offering a fresh sandwich bar, salad bar, as well as daily specials (fajitas, chicken and meat dishes, etc.) along with some standards like rice, fruits, bagels, muffins, etc. Frozen yogurt machines too :)

        1. Look into Revolution Foods- originally started in the Bay Area, they have moved to LA. The company is founded on the idea of bringing nutrious, local, and good food into schools
