Kickin Nuggets at San Ramon Valley Unified School District

The Nugget “Rebellyion” Comes to School Lunches in California and Beyond

September 7, 2021 | Seattle, Wash. –  Just in time for the return to classrooms, plant-based meat start-up Rebellyous Foods announced the roll out of its plant-based nuggets at a growing number of school districts in California and Washington. Its protein-rich plant-based nuggets will be on menus at Dublin Unified, Pleasanton Unified, Livermore Joint Unified, and San Ramon Valley Unified in Northern California, Santa Ana Unified in Southern California, as well as Everett Public Schools in Washington.

“Schools play a pivotal role in shaping children’s dietary patterns, so we are thrilled to be able to offer Rebellyous Kickin Nuggets to help acquaint our diners with delicious plant-based options while teaching the importance of eating a wider variety of foods,” said Frank Castro, Director of Child Nutrition Services at Dublin Unified School District.

Rebellyous’ Kickin’ Nuggets are 100% vegan with no cholesterol, antibiotics, or hormones, and less saturated fat and sodium than chicken nuggets and meet the USDA standards for 2 meat alternate credits for the National School Lunch Program. 

“As school districts across the nation face supply chain shortages, we are proud to be able to offer students nutritious, delicious, plant-based nuggets,” said Christie Lagally, founder and CEO of Rebellyous. “Making plant-based foods available to everyone, especially schoolchildren, is a critical part of our mission at Rebellyous Foods.” 

Rebellyous Kickin’ Nuggets are just as easy to prepare as their chicken-based counterparts and offer many nutritional benefits of plant-based protein. They’re available in California through The Danielsen Company, Gold Star, and nationwide through ePallet.
