About Us

Our Story

AZ School Meals began operating in 1995. Our company founders saw a need to improve the nutritional quality of meals for students in child care centers, preschools, and charter schools. Our mission is to develop nutritious and good tasting homemade meals that students would enjoy. We feel that it is important to include wholesome foods as well as culturally diverse foods in our menus.

We strive to provide students with the opportunity to try new things as well as enjoy traditional family favorites. AZ School Meals only caters Arizona schools. Most other school caterers in the valley are an add-on to that company’s main business. School catering is our mission & our passion. It is the only thing that we do. AZ School Meals’ 25 years of catering experience, service, menus & unparalleled dedication to student nutrition make us the premier school caterer in Arizona.


We provide our customers with friendly and efficient service so that you can focus on the education of the children.

We are always available to you by phone or email during school hours.

We can provide NSLP servers if you require or deliver the food to your facility.
