Food & Nutrition Services Financial Results - Glenn Gustafson

In 2005, the District took it's Food Service operation from a privatized operation to a self-operated program.  At the time, many board members were incredulous that we could do a better job than an outside contracted agency but the attached results are clear.  Not only is our Food Service Fund more profitable now (covering all direct and indirect expenses while building fund-balance to cover monthly cost of operation), we were able to postpone meal price increases for two consecutive years, we have bumped our ESP bonus program to a 4% pay increase, we have reinvested in our signage and equipment at schools, we have increased the healthiness of our meal offerings and breakfast/lunch participation continues to soar despite our declining enrollment.
