Keystone Foodservice Brings Hollis

Public Schools New Meal Options
HOLLIS A new menu
with fresh, healthy meal options will be available at Hollis
Public Schools for the 2016-17
school year, thanks to the
newly announced partnership
between the school district and
Keystone Foodservice.
Keystone Foodservice focuses on providing freshly prepared breakfast and lunch options for the students it serves.
The Oklahoma-based and family-owned company serves
approximately 35,000 students
daily and has been selected as
the cafeteria vendor for Hollis
Public Schools.
Keystone is the only K12
child nutrition provider operating in Oklahoma that is actually located and based in Oklahoma.
Keystone Foodservice prepares fresh meals for Oklahoma students like only a busi-

ness located in Oklahoma and

focused on the health of Oklahoma students would, said
Jennifer McQueen, superintendent of Hollis Public Schools,
said. Its meats are seasoned
by hand and its staff personally
ensure produce and fruit are
fresh and high quality. You
dont get that level of attention
and dedication from a company based in another state.
We expect our students, teachers and staff are going to be
excited this year to eat meals
provided by Keystone.
Keystone will begin serving
breakfast and lunch to the students at Hollis when students
return for the start of classes.
Lunch includes a full salad bar,
stocked daily with fresh fruits
and vegetables. Free and reduced prices are available for
students who qualify.
