We are proud to provide the most comprehensive and transparent school lunch program available.

Ten years ago, a good friend of mine who owned a restaurant, was providing lunches to some of the local schools, a couple of days a week. He needed help making the deliveries and asked me, if I could do the deliveries for him. As a newly single mom, I jumped at the chance! It quickly became clear to me that trying to manage a lunch program, was a huge burden for administrators. What if i created a business, where we handle everything for the schools, ptos, etc. One source for menu's, ordering, delivery, everything. Kiddos was the first restaurant based managed lunch program in the Chicagoland area. We may be imitated, but never duplicated.
Michelle realized that if she could offer wholesome lunches made from fresh ingredients from the restaurants we know our kids like, that’s a sure fire way to ensure they will eat them! It was very important to Michelle to establish exclusive partnerships with only those restaurants that make their food fresh daily, using fresh ingredients. Using local restaurants would increase the financial stability of those businesses, which in turn benefits the schools and families in the community through increased tax revenue, increased property values and increased jobs. Michelle’s background in marketing, event coordination and client services enabled her to create a program that took the burden off of the volunteers and administrators in managing their lunch programs. The final step was to develop a system of ordering that would enable families to order their lunches online with as much flexibility, convenience and choice as possible…and Kiddos was born!
