Please take a moment to read the letter from OPAA Dear Parents, Opaa! Food Management is proud to have been awarded the contract to manage the child nutrition program at Hiawatha USD 415. Opaa! is a family owned company that has been serving the nutritional needs of children in Missouri since 1978. We currently manage the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs at over 900 separate locations throughout the Midwest, serving nearly 30 million meals each year. The existing cooks and kitchen staff at Hiawatha USD 415 will now be supported by our team of certified specialists in Wellness and Nutrition, our professional Operations Team, and over 40 years of experience operating the National School Lunch and Breakfast Programs. Your children will be able to choose from a variety of home style lunch and breakfast entrees. We incorporate locally grown fruits and vegetables into our meals, and our rolls and baked goods are freshly baked in your kitchens using healthy whole grains. Every Opaa! recipe and menu is carefully designed to meet the requirements of the Healthy Hunger-Free Kids Act. Opaa!’s vision is to become an indispensable partner with school districts, and we plan to achieve this by focusing on three main goals: 1. Improve the quality, freshness, and variety of offerings so that more children will eat a healthy school lunch and breakfast. By serving each meal with a smile, we hope to make mealtime the highlight of your child’s school day. 2. Implement and manage a financially sustainable nutrition program. 3. Ensure that the program is fully compliant with all federal, state, and local regulations.
