Food Services November Update

Original post from Newton Public Schools – 

November 2019 – NPS is working closely with the new food service partner, Whitsons, to promote sustainable practices at school cafeterias. The following practices have been adopted within the current program:

  • Use of compostable trays
  • Elimination of straws (compostable straws available as needed in house for special circumstances),
  • Elimination of styrofoam
  • Use of green preserve reusable containers for Education Center lunch meals (soon to be expanded to aftercare programs and eventually introduced to all elementary schools)
  • Meatless Mondays: Pilot program for meatless Mondays through the month of November
