THE RECORD

Amelie Wilday was coming home “weepy, cranky, tired and hungry,” according to her mother, Gaby. It was two years ago, halfway through the first month of first grade, and something was not right with the Ridgewood 6-year-old. Gaby Wilday, who had ordered Amelie’s lunch through the school’s food provider, asked her daughter to bring home what she wasn’t eating.”That’s when I noticed she just wasn’t eating,” said Wilday. Amelie didn’t like the food, and her mother didn’t like the quality. She also noticed the Wildays must not have been alone, as there were many lunches from outside food vendors being dropped off at Ridgewood schools.Already with a commercial kitchen for a sauce business, she decided to see if she could create a better school lunch model. She started with seven lunches, which she gave to a group of families for free in return for feedback. She ended up hearing from many more than those seven.

“By November 1st, I was getting emails from principals, PTO presidents, parents from other schools,” she said.
