Made On Site At Fresh Picks Café, “fresh” is food that’s prepared at the location where it’s served and from scratch whenever possible. Because we know from experience that repackaged foods shipped from a central caterer just can’t compare. We start with menus and recipes written to meet today’s rigorous nutritional and regulatory requirements. Our onsite food service staff then works with your school community to adapt the recipes for your tastes and preferences. Everything we cook up incorporates a mouth-watering mix of farm-fresh ingredients and is prepared professionally onsite by skilled chefs. Farm Fresh Ingredients Fresh Picks Café partners with farmers throughout New England to get the premium ingredients we need to serve fresh and nutritious, great tasting food. Thanks to our innovative and proactive farm-to-school purchasing programs, Fresh Picks Café is able to bring you the best food products in the region. Our farm community partnerships provide educational value too — bringing farmers to our schools to interact with student cafeteria farmers and serve as advisors to our school garden programs. Prepared Professionally Fresh Picks Café food service team members go through a thorough and comprehensive training regimen with a variety of expert resources. These include our own master chefs and food safety professionals, guest lecturers on the cutting edge of food service trends, and organizations like the School Nutrition Association and National Restaurant Association. The result is a standard of food quality that’s nothing short of extraordinary. At Fresh Picks Café, great food is our passion and it shows.
