Wednesday, August 03, 2022

Kirsten Saenz Tobey, Co-Founder and Chief Impact Officer of Revolution Foods, describes how the B Corp she co-founded is helping kids now and in the future. “Our focus has always been to build lifelong healthy eaters, and to do that through primarily school and institutional food systems and access to high quality, healthy food,” she says.

One of Revolution Foods’ keys to this strategy is getting kids food they like. “Every time we design a new dish or a new meal, our chefs go out into school cafeterias to test it with kids and get feedback on which they liked and which they didn’t like as much.”
