    Hi Becky - you should check out SwipeHunger.org - we work with them on our campus and they do a great job. I can share more specifics off-line next week when things lighten up a bit, but I'll share that they do lots of the work, including partnering with a food service provider if you have one.  Just need to frame the "how" and the "what" with them... ...
