Students Will See Healthier Food
By Josh Resnek
About 80 cafeteria employees packed into the conference room at School Administration headquarters on Vine Street Monday night to hear about their future, now that Aramark, the public schools food provider, will not have their contract renewed in July.
Instead, a Request for Proposal (RFP) is being developed by the administration to attract as well as to outline exactly what the future is going to be when it comes to feeding the city’s school children, as well as to pay the tab for the changes to be made.
Right now, more than 7,000 school children are fed twice daily at all of the public schools.
“We need to teach the kids how to eat,” the mayor said.
