AVI Fresh: Nutritious, Meals for Magnificat Students, Faculty, & Staff
Magnificat partners with AVI Fresh to provide nutritious lunches, snacks, and beverages throughout the school day and catering services for school events. Following AVI Fresh’s philosophy of making a difference in every aspect of their customers’ dining experience, the culinary standards they set include specific guidelines to incorporate fresh foods in all recipes. Further, their commitment to local sustainability begins with a purchasing program that includes local farmers and vendors who provide not only fresh, but organic foods as much as possible.
This commitment to sustainability was the perfect match with Magnificat’s commitment to living “green” as well. Nutritional information is shared for all major items and chefs constantly evaluate menu selections based on feedback from students, faculty, and staff. Popular favorites are a variety of wraps, healthy salads, hearty soups, and unique entrée selections. Parents can load money onto student ID cards and replenish it as necessary. As students go through the line, they simply swipe the card, eliminating the need for cash and speeding up the lunch line to allow more time for students to enjoy their lunches.
