Toyota Material Handling, U.S.A., Inc. has announced Toyota Industrial Equipment Mfg., Inc. (TIEM) is lending support to local students through its TIEM café program. Through the program fresh lunches are prepared and delivered to Trinity Lutheran High School. TIEM is working with Aramark, a leader in professional food services, to aid the local Seymour, Ind.-based high school, which does not have an on-site cafeteria and is unable to provide meals to students during lunch or at after school sporting events.

“TIEM has been a part of the Columbus community for 21 years, and we’re happy to offer local students the option of a healthy lunch prepared in our full service, modern associate cafeteria,” said Tim Barker, vice president of corporate services for TIEM. “When we heard of Trinity’s need for lunch services, it seemed liked a natural fit to lend our facility resources, which normally support TIEM’s more than 800 associates.”

Developed by Aramark’s award-winning chefs, menu items are prepared in TIEM’s 11,000 square-foot cafeteria and include a mix of soups, salads, hot and cold sandwiches, hot meals and side item selections for Trinity’s student body of 140. Just4U menu choices, offering healthier meal choices, also are available.

“Trinity Lutheran is very thankful for the support given by TIEM,” said Daniel Sievert, principal of Trinity Lutheran High School. “It is important that our students have the opportunity to choose healthy options during lunch and are grateful to have the support of Toyota.”

The TIEM café program piloted in May and launched officially in August with the start of the school year.
