Food Services on the 2/25 School Committee Agenda
At this week’s School Committee Meeting, HPS Food Services Provider, Whitsons, will be presenting their midyear report. The meeting is Thursday, February 25 in the Middle School Library. Public comments will be accepted at the beginning of the meeting at about 7:15pm, and near the end of the meeting at about 9:20pm. A group of Hopkinton residents has recently formed a Facebook group regarding school lunches. Their mission is to bring a healthier balance to the Hopkinton school lunch program with a greater variety of meal options and plant-based meals that set children up for success now and in the future. As part of their mission, they are looking to bring in organic and non GMO options wherever possible, and locally sourced farm-to-school produce and meats. Members of the group have met with Whitsons and the HPS Finance Director and have submitted several questions in advance, which are expected to be answered during the meeting, but this portion of the meeting will not be interactive with the audience. Members of the public may attend in person or watch on HCAM-TV, barring any technical difficulties (Comcast 8 / Verizon 30 / www.hcam.tv).
