"We are always treated as if we are the most important customer." Barbara Dotty, Stonebridge Community School


Even though we are a small school, we are always treated as if we are the most important customer. To CKC, we matter and we appreciate the professionalism and quality of service from the entire CKC staff.

Barbara Dotty, Food Manager, Stonebridge Community School


Nancy’s dedication to high quality nutritious food options for children and her commitment to above and beyond customer service makes her a valued partner of Hiawatha Academies. We see this same level of dedication and commitment in each CKC representative we interact with.

Sean Elder, Chief Operating Officer, Hiawatha Academies


Nancy exemplifies true leadership in her commitment to create meals that are fresh, healthy and appealing to kids, her generous spirit, warm heart and approachable manner.

Sarah Reuben, Minneapolis Health Department


The salad bar is bountiful, beautiful and fresh every day. I can't believe how many vegetables the kids are eating!

Kim Hyvarenen, Nova Classical Academy


CKC’s Kitchen Manager is in the cafeteria with the kids, talking to them about their food. He’ll make changes to the menu based on what the kids tell him. The kids like that they can talk to the chef.

Nancy has so much knowledge in the school lunch area and she is willing to share that knowledge with me to make my school lunch program a success. Our school has used many caterers over the years but Nancy has, hands down, been the best we have worked with!

Monica Gihl, Food Service Director, Seven Hills Classical Academy

CKC has been so wonderful to partner with all these years... Nancy's dedication to the health of students and the schools that she works with is fantastic. It's been a pleasure working with the whole CKC team!
Sarah Reuben, Healthy Living Team, Minneapolis Health Department

CKC does an awesome job.  They have been extremely helpful in every area. They are always extremely accommodating to our special request lunches like the Chinese New Year and Black History Month cerebration meals. Nancy has personally worked with me to fine-tune the menu to be something healthy and that the students and adults will want to eat. In short, I can’t think of anything more they could be doing at this time to improve on the quality of service we receive. 

Traci Larson, Food Service Director, Maranatha Christian Academy
GREAT customer service! I can’t say one bad thing about the people at CKC! On a scale of 1-10 (10 being the best) I would rate CKC a 10!
Monica Gihl, Food Service Director, Seven Hills Classical Academy
You are in “good hands” at CKC…The Best, Best, Best. 1000% Professional. Absolutely caring. Teaching and mentoring for success. Our school really matters...I don’t know how the certification process could have been easier. Thank you.

The children at LADC love the food from CKC!  It is flavorful and appealing in both texture and color. We have seven locations using CKC and all the Site Directors feel they have a voice in the selections on the menu and feel it is easy for families to access. CKC does a great job of communicating with us and helping with any needed paperwork so that we receive all entitlements. Their staff is very professional and prompt in their work with LADC! We are very pleased with our experience so far!
Janet Miller, Executive Director, Lake Area Discovery Schools

If you are looking for variety in your school meals, meals that are fresh and flavorful that kids actually eat, then CKC has what you are looking for.

Kim Hyvarinen, Nova Classical Academy


Kids love the food. They are so fascinated, so excited for the menu. They like the fact they get different veggies and foods - that they have different choices. Even the staff love the food. We probably have 70-80% of the staff eat every day. [With our previous company,] staff never ate the lunch. Now they remind me when I forget to send out the menu at the beginning of the month. The kids tell us, "Our teachers never ate the food last year. Now they’re in line eating the same food we eat."
