When Revolution Growth announced our investment in Revolution Foods last year, we knew co-founders, Kristin Groos Richmond and Kirsten Saenz Tobey, were on to something special. Inspired by their experiences as moms themselves, they knew school lunches were in need of a major overhaul. We’re thrilled that Fast Company has taken notice of their, dare we say “revolutionary,” approach to making healthy eating accessible and affordable for all kids.
Founded in 2006, Revolution Foods creates and provides healthy, kid-inspired school meals and retail products designed to provide more American families with access to affordable, delicious, healthy food. They currently feed over 1.5 million meals a week to children in 27 cities around the country with over 80% of meals going to students in the nation’s most underserved communities, and they haven’t stopped there. In 2013, they launched a line of healthy packaged meals that are sold in over 2,000 grocery stores around the United States.
In addition to being named Most Innovative by Fast Company, Revolution Foods was #19 on the Inner City 100 List, and FORTUNE magazine named Kristin and Kirsten the ‘Most Innovative Women in Food and Drink.’
Congratulations Kristin, Kirsten, and the Revolution Foods team for your hard work and dedication to transforming the way America eats!
