Smart Lunches on Organic and GMO-labeled Food

It seems not a day goes by when someone offers their opinion on what your family eats–what you should and shouldn’t avoid, what’s good for you and what’s not. It can get overwhelming.

At Smart Lunches, we believe that every family should be empowered to make their own decisions about the types of food they eat. That’s why we want to give you as much information about our food as possible, so families can make an educated decision about our meals. It’s also why we offer allergy-labeling and clear and simple ingredient lists for our foods.

Many customers ask us about our organic or GMO-labeled foods. While our menu is not 100% organic or GMO-labeled, we care a lot about food quality across our catering partners and work intensively to ensure we’re bringing you the best quality food at a good value.

Organic foods

Regarding organic foods, we monitor the Dirty Dozen and Clean Fifteen and seasonal opportunities across our partners to bring organic options into our mix as best we can.

We work with our catering and nutritionist partners at an individual level to attempt to offer organic produce and products whenever possible. For instance, we’ve chosen to offer a 100% organic, nitrate-free, all-beef hot dog on a whole-wheat bun. We also offer organic, hormone-free milk.

Unfortunately, at this time, given the very broad variety of menu items we offer, it’s not economic to provide a 100% organic menu, but it’s something we look forward to doing in the future.


GMOs can be found in most major food products available today. At Smart Lunches, we are actively working with our catering partners and other food suppliers to understand specifically where GMOs are found in the ingredients we may use in our menus and recipes. We anticipate being able to label products that contain GMOs once this process is complete.

We hope this helps you make an educated decision about using Smart Lunches! If you’d like to know more, please don’t hesitate to give us a call at 1-888-25 SMART or email us at
