We do however recommend parents who have kids with severe allergies to make their own arrangements.Our PhilosophyGourmet Gorilla provides healthy local and organic food for kids, with an emphasis on foods that are familiar to children, while occasionally pushing the envelope of taste and food experience. Our menus are as much a learning and educational experience as they are a healthy eating option. Gourmet Gorilla recipes are designed to meet and exceed the USDA, Illinois Board of Education and City of Chicago Board of Education meal requirements. All our meals are kid tested and developed with 1 to 12 year olds in mind!The EnvironmentOur kitchen is working towards becoming a zero waste kitchen, with a composting program, recycling program, and delivery via environmentally responsible vehicles. Schools that switch to us not only obtain better nutrition and safer food, but also help the local economy, promote food security, and encourage environmental responsibility.Farm to SchoolGourmet Gorilla also has the ability to develop curriculum for schools to incorporate farm to school programs, this may include setup of indoor/outdoor herb gardens, visits to urban farms to collect produce, pet animals, and learn about the lifecycle of the organic food chain.Offsite Catering ServicesGourmet Gorilla provides pre-schools, schools, and institutions with breakfast, lunch and snacks, delivered daily.
