Food Service Advisory Committee
The Food Service Advisory Committee’s (FSAC) primary objective is to increase participation and ensure a high quality service and product in the Public Schools of Brookline Food Service Program. In order to achieve this objective, the committee assists in menu planning, reviews recipes, surveys parents and students and collaborates with sustainable recycling programs and local sustainable food programs. The Food Service Advisory Committee is to work with various constituent groups, in a proactive way, to ensure there is support for future food service offerings and operational plans, new program initiatives, utilization of online payment systems and procedures along with decentralized food service environments, and other issues which affect satisfaction, quality and service orientation. The committee welcomes input from students, parents, staff and Wellness Committee members on changes to the Food Service Program and is continually focused on improving communication within the school district as well as throughout the community about the program.
This committee is appointed by the School Committee and serves in an advisory capacity to the Deputy Superintendent for Administration and Finance and the Director of Operations with regard to the district’s retail food/beverage program and the vending program. The committee is responsible for reviewing menu and food offerings provided by the Food Service Program are in compliance with all rules, regulations, issued by USDA, MA DESE, MA DPH, and the PSB Wellness Policy.
