LAKE VILLA, IL and BROOKFIELD, WI--(Marketwire - October 19, 2010) -  Quality Catering has expanded its delivery of ready-to-eat family style meals to adult day care centers in northern Illinois and southeastern Wisconsin.

"We've heard from operators of adult day care centers who are looking for meal providers that offer greater convenience and nutritious meals that are tasty and easy for their center participants to eat," said James Scharnell, president of Quality Catering.

The company has provided meals for a small number of adult day care centers since it was founded more than 30 years ago, but those were offered through its Quality Catering for Kids division, which provides hot lunches to child care centers and private grade schools.

Based on that experience and in response to increased demand, the Quality Catering division was expanded to focus on adult day care center meals.

Quality Catering prepares its meals in a USDA-certified kitchen, with menus guided by a registered dietary technician to ensure that federal nutrition guidelines and state food service requirements for adult day care centers are met.

Most meals include fresh fruit, milk and/or juice, and dessert.

"Our kitchen is one of the few in the region that is USDA certified, and we follow the USDA's strict food handling safety procedures, so our customers and the families of loved ones in adult day care centers can be assured of the quality of our meals," Scharnell said.

Meals are delivered each morning in thermal containers, ready to serve, with portion guidelines provided. There is no need for stoves or ovens.

Quality Catering offers breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. Wholesale items, such as canned goods, serving items and cleaning items also are offered.

The company has offices in Lake Villa, Ill. and Brookfield, Wis. Each day it prepares and delivers more than 15,000 meals for adult day care centers, child care centers, preschools and private grade schools in the Chicago area, northern Illinois, metropolitan Milwaukee and southeastern Wisconsin.
