ARAMARK services 8 buildings in Lincoln, including Lincoln High, Lincoln Middle, 4 elementary schools plus Spurwink School and St. James in the Northern RI Collaborative.
Throughout the school year ARAMARK School Nutrition Services works with nurse educators and administrators to develop and implement a variety of nutrition education activities. One of the more popular is an event called “Table Hosting”. Parents and community members are invited to their student’s school to enjoy school lunch and engage students in nutrition education activities.
