NEWPORT COAST — Laguna Beach restaurateur Azmin Ghahreman's Sapphire at School has been selected to provide meals for Sage Hill School in Newport Coast, beginning in August for the next school year.
Sage Hill joins four other Orange County private schools that offer Mediterranean-style cuisine that emphasizes healthy eating.
Ghahreman, owner of Sapphire Laguna restaurant, developed Sapphire at School in 2007 to provide students with a variety of healthy, restaurant-quality, globally influenced cuisine prepared daily by professional chefs.
"Teaching children about food and nutrition has been a passion of mine for many years," Ghahreman said. "I believe that kids should be given the skills and education they need to make smart, informed decisions about the foods they eat. Every child deserves a healthy start."
