School Focused Since 1982
As a multigenerational family food company, we've been passionate about school nutrition since 1982. We're fully committed to making quality, nutritious, and wholesome foods that kids know and love. Our versatile lineup of commercial and commodity foods are based on our experience with markets like Trader Joe's, club stores like Costco and chef-driven restaurants that explore new flavors and cooking techniques. We know how to complete a well-balanced menu. We're raising the bar when it comes to school food quality and nutrition along with the people who make, deliver, and serve meals to kids every day - they're the unsung heroes of the school nutrition world. That's why we work closely with school foodservice teams from coast to coast to ensure that our products meet their needs and exceed their expectations. So if you're looking for a trusted national partner for better protein options that all meet or exceed School Lunch requirements, look no further than Don Lee Farms. We've been changing the game for over 40 years, and we're just getting started!
