The Nutrition Services Facility is in the later stages of a $10 million expansion and renovation, and the added space will help them as they expect to serve more meals with more students eligible for free lunches.

In the 2019-2020, 39 schools will have free breakfast and lunch for every student, no matter household income. The schools are at the bottom of this story.

A spokesperson for the district says they considered opening the building for "double sessions," meaning they would operate a day shift and a night shift in order to make the food needed. Expanding the building was one of the main priorities listed for funds from WC-1 in 2016.
