Food Day Festival at Lawrence School

FSD for Brookline School District Gus Travassos and team member at the Food Day Festival
This month the Whitsons team participated at the 6th Annual Lawrence Food Day Festival at Lawrence School in Brookline, Massachusetts.

The fall festival is an annual event organized by the Food Day Festival Committee and is made possible by the support of Lawrence, parents, teachers, staff, and administrators; the Lawrence PTO; and Brookline’s food vending and sustainability committee.

Over 500 people were in attendance of the event which helps to collect donations to support the work of the Brookline Food Pantry and more. A student recipe contest was held at the event as well as local food providers showcasing some of their food favorite recipes. Food Service Director, Gus Travassos and team members served over 350 samples of our Roasted Squash with Kale and Faro.

Our Roasted Squash is a delicious and savory vegetable dish that was very well received by students, parents, staff, and other attendees of the event. Many compliments were given to Chef and Culinary Innovation Specialist, Ryan Hurley. It was great day for all!
