True Story. I will only add that we have turned ALL the savings back into the D11 Food & Nutrition Services program in the form of better quality food for our students and improved wages for our employees. We are not sitting on a half-million dollars annually. We still scrape for every penny and work very, very hard to break-even each year. We are serving more meals and better quality food than before we parted ways with Sodexo. AND last year we put $750,000 back into the local economy through our purchases of locally grown food. ~ Rick Hughes, Director of Food & Nutrition Services
