Our Story

Fly Girl Fly started with a small group of  teachers  who felt their students deserved a better school lunch. When they couldn't find one, they set out to create it themselves. 

The program they started was founded on a simple mission; create healthy, naturally sourced meals, that kids are truly excited to eat.

Operating out of a spectacular kitchen with an amazing team, Fly Girl Fly has quickly become one of the best school lunch programs available. With an ever growing team of partners, friends and opportunities, our program has already started to make an impact on the culture of healthy school meals, and all of us are tremendously proud of what the program has become.

Our Beautiful Kitchen

Originally a locomotive barn for the Illinois Central Rail Road, our building was converted into a commercial bakery in the 1940s, before eventually becoming our glorious Fly Girl Fly Kitchen.

Today it still has all its elegant vintage charm, while also being equipped with every modern amenity we could ask for and enough space to grower decades. 

Fly GIRL Fly

Fly Girl Fly is  proud to be a 100% women owned, women managed, and women run company company!

Also, all of us have young women in our lives we're hoping to set a good example for. They're the inspiration for our name, and the motivation behind out mission.
