LEADER IN HEALTHY SCHOOL FOOD DRIVES INNOVATION WITH CONVENIENT, MEAL SOLUTIONS FOR BUSY FAMILIES
Oakland, CA – November 15, 2016 – Revolution Foods, the leading provider of healthy school meals
across America, is bringing an innovative approach to the grocery aisle to help busy families prepare
better-for-you, delicious meals at home in minutes. Launched today, Dinner Hero and Breakfast Hero
are speed scratch meal solutions enabling parents to prepare and serve hot, chef-crafted meals for
breakfast and dinner without sacrificing nutrition.
“As busy working moms ourselves, we understand the challenges that busy parents face every day,
especially when it comes to meal preparation. We are solving parents’ desire to prepare a home cooked
meal within 30 minutes with our culinary-inspired speed scratch solutions,” said Kirsten Saenz Tobey,
chief impact officer and co-founder of Revolution Foods. “Our new Dinner Hero and Breakfast Hero
lines are a healthy alternative to current offerings that require consumers to tradeoff quality or nutrition
for convenience. We simplify meal preparation and enable faster cooking to make parents heroes and
help them prepare a home cooked meal, even when they are short on time.”
Dinner Hero is a delicious and healthy meal kit that includes whole grains, custom spice blends, and
sauces with easy to follow recipes – just add protein for a complete meal in 30 minutes. The unique,
cookbook style packaging enhances the experience of cooking for busy parents. Dinner Hero has 42-49
grams of whole grains per serving (brown rice and quinoa blend or brown rice and bamboo rice) with no
artificial colors or flavors. The chef-created flavors include: Coconut Curry, Sesame Garlic, Smoky
Tomato Sausage and Fiesta Taco.
Breakfast Hero is a “no mix, no mess” thaw-and-pour pancake batter that requires no added water or
mixing and is the simplest way to serve a hot, hearty and satisfying breakfast. It is the only pancake
product with whole milk as the first ingredient, and is also made with real eggs. Multigrain and
Chocolate Multigrain has 12-14 grams of whole grains and all flavors provide six grams of protein per
serving, and contains no artificial colors or flavors. A convenient way to make a hot breakfast, the easy
pour and re-closeable spout leaves no messy clean up, and once thawed it lasts for 10 days and makes
15 pancakes. The family-friendly flavors include: Original, Multigrain and Chocolate Multigrain.
With Breakfast Hero and Dinner Hero, Revolution Foods now offers a full portfolio of meal solutions to
nourish families through the day. As with all Revolution Foods products, one percent of retail sales will be donated back to schools through the company’s “Feeding Good Fund” which provides grants to
schools who need equipment to serve freshly prepared meals to their students.
