What should you know about the Paycheck Protection Program as you plan your re-opening, or scaling-up strategy?
Rely on Smart Lunches for Quality, Reliability, and Value, values reflected in our Culinary Philosophy, a statement clarifying our commitment to the preschools and childcare centers that partner with us and the kids and parents who depend on us.

One of our newest catering partners, Chez Alice, operates out of the Princeton area and serves 10 of our partners during the school year. We spoke to Kelly Hamdan, the owner of Chez Alice, to find out a little bit more about her business. This interview has been edited for clarity.
