Newton Public Schools’ New Food Service Provider & Advisory Group

With the start of the school year, Newton Public Schools will begin working with Whitsons Culinary Group as its new food service provider. To ensure a positive food experience for students across the city, NPS has formed the Food Service Advisory Group comprised of parents from each school. The group has been meeting with Whitsons to ensure a smooth transition and to address concerns. The new lunch program will include some exciting updates including compostable food containers, handcrafted cheese pizza, Meatless Mondays, Bento Boxes and more. 

Brown’s parent liaison to this committee is Elizabeth Navisky who can be reached at for general questions or feedback on Whitsons.  You may also use the Food Service Community Comments Food Service Community Comment Form.
