Community Involvement

Community involvement takes many forms, including information exchange about the school nutrition program, as well as rallying around community initiatives that contribute to the greater good of the community. Whitsons is equally committed to each aspect of community support.

 

  • Board Meetings. We remain actively involved at the school board level, to the extent that our clients wish, to keep board members informed and involved in the foodservice program. This allows us to integrate ourselves into the community and better tailor our services to meet the community’s unique needs.

  • PTA Meetings. Whitsons welcomes the opportunity to attend PTA meetings to present program enhancement ideas and obtain feedback from the PTA. We view the PTA as a valuable resource in developing program enhancements.
  • Parent Communications. Our menus are distributed in accordance with each school’s preferred method of correspondence with parents. We want to keep parents informed of program options, menus and promotions, as well as encourage them to contact us with questions, concerns or special needs.
  • Media Relations. Whitsons has a collaborative public relations program that is customized by client to communicate to the community about the nutrition-focused, innovative changes the district has brought to the school breakfast and lunch programs.
  • Local Purchasing Initiatives. As mentioned in many areas of our website, Whitsons is committed to supporting the communities we serve through partnerships with local farms and other suppliers of goods and services. Currently, we source an average of 52% of our products locally companywide. This is a figure that far surpasses industry standards.
  • Community Initiatives. Whitsons has numerous examples of community outreach efforts.
