While setting up our Center I wanted to serve USDA Certified ORGANIC meals. After a very extensive search I realized that there is NO caterer in WI with USDA Certification Stamp. Many caterers offered something they called “organic”, BUT the only organic thing about it was the label on a metal can. LOL Seriously! … they offered “organic” product inside a metal can (if you ever come across a metal can with “organic” label on it, please see all the chemicals and preservatives listed on the back of this can). In short, childcare centers and school in WI serve meals made with foods out of metal cans, frozen foods like chicken nuggets, fries and pizza, and preserved fruits and vegetables. As a very concerned parent, I was not going to put up with it!
I expended my search to nearby states, and I was very lucky to find Quality Catering – a kitchen in Illinois providing 100% USDA ORGANIC menu.
