As part of the investment, Steve Case of Revolution will join the company’s board.
The company intends to use the funds to expand its school meal service and line of ready-to-eat Meal Kits into new schools and stores.
Founded by Kristin Groos Richmond and Kirsten Saenz Tobey, Revolution Foods provides access to food that meets the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act requirements under the National School Lunch Program and Child Adult Care Food Program guidelines, which allow school meals to be reimbursable.
The company currently prepares and delivers more than one million fresh meals each week to approximately 1,000 schools nationwide, the majority of which are in the nation’s most underserved communities.
Their kid-designed meals are made from natural ingredients that never include high fructose corn syrup or artificial colors, flavors or preservatives.
Revolution Foods Meal Kits, launched in 2013, are available in in more than 2,000 grocery stores (such as Safeway, Vons and HEB) throughout the U.S.
