Dining Services

Lawrence Academy’s dining hall is a spot for the school community to come together for meals, but it’s also a spot to relax, converse, and bond.

We are proud to officially unveil the new face of food service at Lawrence Academy.

FLIK Independent School Dining serves over 300 schools in 47 states, including local New England schools in the Independent School League.

Mealtimes at school are an important part of the daily student experience – it’s a time to break bread together, socialize with friends, fuel student bodies, and nourish sharp minds.

At FLIK Independent School Dining, we empower the entire school community to make healthier food choices with menus that celebrate seasonality and use the freshest ingredients possible.

We believe in transparency. Our wellness-first approach to food results in nutritious meals that are unmatched in flavor and authenticity.

We believe every meal is a moment to
Eat, Share, and Connect

"We love what we do. Nourishing the mind, body, and soul of the people we serve and the people we grow. It’s about procuring the freshest foods and creating an environment that promotes even fresher ideas. We stage food-centric moments of sharing. Our food brings people together. Our people bring their best every day."
FLIK, on their food and customer service philosophy

Eat to Nourish

Nourishing students and school communities is more than our business–it’s our commitment to building strong bodies and fueling sharp minds.

Share Knowledge

Rooted in nutrition education, we ensure the student experience and the entire campus community can make healthy food choices every day.

Connect Community

We are responsible for creating an environment of respect for each other and our planet. Through local partnerships, we can better support our local community together.
