Today we venture into new territory with the help of Chef Lisa Feldman, who is Director of Culinary Services for Sodexo USA. As a major provider of school meals (413 districts, two million meals daily), it’s significant and influential in ways you may never have imagined. The company's ambitious strategies to introduce ever-fresher, more wholesome, and more appealing food on a mass scale are freely shared throughout the K-12 nutrition industry. "Nothing is proprietary," says Feldman, who prizes creative collaboration not just with processors and trade groups, but also self-ops and even Sodexo competitors. "When districts are all doing their own thing, it's more expensive."
