"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.

Nancy Close is changing the way nutrition is provided in the public square and is a hero that challenges us all to accomplish good works for the higher good of the community.

Annette Bauer, Public Relations Director, Salvation Army Northern Division


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 did all the hard work in getting our menu certification processed. They came to our school and worked through all the details with us. Because of CKC, the process was very easy from the school’s perspective. In five years of working with CKC on commodities we have never had a problem. CKC walks us through the process each year and we always end with a revenue. The one year we worked with another food provider has convinced us that CKC is the best.

Kim Klayum, Business Manager, Paideia Academy (school has since closed)


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
CKC makes the menu certification process very easy by providing all necessary information to make the appropriate choices. Friendship Academy is very satisfied and very confident with CKC’s commodities process.  
Marian Langley, Office Support, Friendship Academy of the Arts

The meals are delicious and the kids are enjoying the new menu so far. I’ve been lucky enough to partake of some leftovers, and the Teriyaki Chicken Bowl was absolutely scrumptious! I wanted to say THANK YOU and let you know the meals, and their high quality, are deeply appreciated.
