Whitsons Culinary Group Partners with inTEAM, Inc and PASD for Pre-Ordering School Lunch Program

Helping students make healthier meal choices convenient

Islandia, New York, Dec. 11, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) --

Whitsons Culinary Group, a provider of nutrition services for public schools throughout the Northeast has announced its partnership with inTEAM and Phoenixville Area School District in Phoenixville, PA in creating a pre-ordering school lunch program. The program will utilize Choosi, a mobile app developed by InTEAM that allows students the opportunity to customize and pre-order grab and go meals, so they do not have to wait in line and have more time to eat their meals during their lunch period.  The pre-ordering school lunch program is a first for students of the Phoenixville Area school district which launched on December 8th at Phoenixville High School. “I appreciate Whitsons working to improve the lunch experience for our students. I’m also very happy that the students can choose custom sandwiches and salads to be ready when they arrive. It’s just another way to make choosing healthy options easier for our students,” said Jean Szegedy, Business Office Specialist at Phoenixville Area School District.

Pre-ordering school lunch programs have shown great success in reducing food waste and keeping school lunch lines running more efficiently.  According to John Koutras, District Manager for Whitsons Culinary Group, “Partnering with Choosi and bringing this innovative concept to school lunch is just one more example of Whitsons’ commitment to the PASD community of Enhancing Life One Meal at a Time.  We are continuously searching for technological advancements and to improve our food service programs so that students can benefit. Students will be able to move through the lines more quickly so they have more time eating a healthy meal instead of waiting to eat.”  Following the initial launch at Phoenixville High School, Whitsons plans on expanding its pre-ordering program to several other school districts that it services within the Northeast.
