In 2016, Dan Giusti - former head chef at Copenhagen-based Noma - founded Brigaid, a school meals consultancy company. The idea behind Brigaid is to help provide nutritious school meals, primarily to children who attend schools with free lunch programmes for low income families. Brigaid teaches schools "how to prepare better food in-house at a rate low enough that they can break even on federal reimbursement for the children they serve." Since its beginning, Brigaid has helped serve more than 2 million meals.
