Nashua North student pushes for coffee perk at school
“I’ve been doing research, and the school can raise revenue,” Lambert said. “Students will be buying their drinks here instead of at Dunkin’ Donuts and Starbucks. It would benefit both the students and the school alike.”
Lambert said the shop would serve coffee, tea and hot chocolate.
“Many schools are already doing this,” he said adding that a coffee shop would hike attendance.
Board member Elizabeth Van Twuyver asked if the shop would be run out of the existing café at Nashua North, or be somewhere else in the school.
Robert Hallowell reminded the board of a proposal made several years ago to bring a Dunkin’ Donuts into Nashua North.
School breakfast and lunch programs are supported by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and certain limitations and requirements may be tied to that funding, he said.
Although Lambert did not go into detail about how the new coffee enterprise would be managed, he did emphasize the idea of a private, school-run shop.
“I think we need to know, does this fall in line with the district’s wellness policy,” he said.
