Food Service

Charles City Community Schools partners with Taher, Inc. for food service.

Their enthusiasm for food translates directly into a better experience for K-12 lunch students: meals made with fresh, high-quality ingredients. Dishes prepared from scratch. Menus and display cooking sessions inspired by our Chef Council’s world travels. Plenty of healthy options.

After more than 30 years in this business, Taher knows what it takes to create successful partnerships. Taher is responsible for meeting nutritional guidelines.
