School lunch programs tend to vary between delicious and disgusting. At Moving Feast Catering, their goal is to create healthy options that kids enjoy.

As an athlete he recognizes the family atmosphere that comes from bonding with his teammates, and the challenges that playing both offense and defense brings.
