About the Program: 

We’re trained chefs taking on a new challenge: School lunch.

Our mission is to transform the way our kids eat and grow by bringing the skills we’ve honed in the restaurant world into the schools and community around us.

We believe lunch should be longer than 22 minutes. We believe that our kids deserve real food, cooked with care and passion by a chef whose full-time job is to work in schools. We believe that eating should be a positive, healthy, and person-to-person experience – and we believe that we can accomplish that in an efficient and cost-effective way.

Brigaid was founded by Dan Giusti, the former head chef of one of the world’s top restaurants, Noma, in Copenhagen. We’re a growing operation, but we’re dedicated to our mission: transforming the way schools serve meals to America’s schoolchildren.
