School Committee member William Glynn, who leads the subcommittee, said he thought all four companies would be good choices. But Whitsons stood out because it is family-run and vertically integrated, meaning the company takes care of all aspects of food production, he said.
"They have farms and vendors that they work with that basically grow food to their specifications," which could make it easier to serve food that is safe for students with allergies, Glynn said.
Amy Acevedo, co-chair of parent group Franklin Families with Food Allergic Children and Teens, said she hopes a private company can better meet the needs of such students.
"There are so many different food allergies that there is no one lunch program that would address every allergy," said Acevedo, who has two elementary school children with allergies.
She said she would at least like to see items such as gluten-free pizza and frozen fruit on the menus, giving students with allergies more opportunity to buy meals that are similar to their classmates'.
School leaders plan to examine the allergy issue, Glynn said, although it is too early to determine what specific menu changes may be made.
I'm pretty sure this is in the states, but which one, I'm not sure.

Milford, Massachusetts and their progressive attitude may encourage Allergic Living's first Annual Poll of Most Livable Cities and Most Accomodating Schools for People with Food Allergies!
