Smart Lunches = Smart Move

Empow Studios is pleased to partner with Smart Lunches for the 2014 Summer Camp season. offers parents the option of ordering in advance a delicious, nutritious, and expeditious lunches for their campers. This week, we’re joined by Anne Crays, Smart Lunches SVP Partners and Philanthropy to share some information about the program.

Nothing compares to camp when it comes to summertime fun! But having fun is hard work. Our campers are on the move all day long. We need to refill their tanks with a healthy lunch. Packing a high quality summer lunch is easier said than done. It must be fresh but withstand the heat of the day. It must be healthy but enjoyable. And, you’ve got to mix it up – your camper won’t be happy with the same thing every day. At Smart Lunches, we’ve solved the summer lunch conundrum! Consider this:

Nutrition. At Smart Lunches, we know that a nutritionally balanced lunch is what keeps our campers going. We mix high quality proteins with the right balance of fruits, veggies and whole grains to give our campers the energy they need.

Variety. Every camper is different and their tastes change from day to day. Variable portion sizes and our kid tested recipes appeal to even the pickiest of lunchers. Your camper can try something new every day or stick with an old favorite.

Allergen awareness. At Smart Lunches, we know that allergies are concerning and we take them very seriously. Our menu is nut-free and we have plenty of gluten, egg and dairy free options. Please visit our “allergy policy” on our website for more details.

Temperature control. Our hot lunches stay hot and our cold lunches stay cold! That’s an impressive feat for July and August!

Ease. Smart Lunches makes it easy for you and your camper. You focus on your camper and we focus on lunch. Our lunches are hand-held and easy to eat – whether it be sitting at a picnic table or around a camp fire.

We asked our most important customers what they thought of Smart Lunches, and here’s what a couple of campers at Brooks School Summer Program had to say\u2026
