CEC Food Services & Scratch Kitchens

CEC Food Services believes that scratch food can change the world. We are committed to creating delicious scratch-made meals with a farm to school program model across all of our campuses. Breakfast and lunches from our scratch kitchens at CEC Aurora and CEC Fort Collins are made with fresh, whole food ingredients that energize students so they can maximize their educational goals. We want every student that walks into the cafe to know they are a part of a community that values them. Some of our local vendors are Red Bird Chicken, Royal Crest Dairies and grass fed beef from Lone Pine Cattle Company, Red Feather.

Our CEC Aurora scratch kitchen provides meals for our Aurora and Inverness campuses and our CEC Fort Collins scratch kitchen provides meals for our three campuses in Fort Collins and our Windsor campus.

Meals at our CEC Colorado Springs 6-12 campus are provided through Colorado Springs School District 11 and information is availabe on the CECCS school page to learn more.

Prepared breakfast and lunches are currently not available at our Castle Rock and Parker campuses but we are working diligently to offer both in the near future.
