Under this advisement, the Hampstead School District food service vendor, Fresh Picks, has removed romaine lettuce from service in all menu applications to include salad bars, entrees and sandwiches. They will supplement with other lettuce varieties not impacted by the alert.

We want to thank Fresh Picks for their diligence in providing healthy meals to our students and staff.
