The Wrangell school board voted Monday night to turn the district’s food service program over to Nana Management Services, LLC.
NMS will hire the Wrangell school district’s food service employees and manage several aspects of the school food program.
School board president Susan Eagle said NMS will charge the school district per meal.
“In the past, all the food service program employees were employees of the district. and we were responsible for purchasing all of the supplies, and the cook was responsible for preparing those meals, tracking all of the supplies and all of the reporting requirements. And Nana will take over a portion of that then,” Eagle said.
The food service contract was tabled at the school board’s June 16 regular meeting. It goes into effect July 1.
The special meeting also included a vote to accept a $40,000 grant from the Alaska Department of Labor and Workforce Development. The award will provide equipment and training for the Career and Technical Education Program.
The school board also voted to sell a commercial kitchen mixer.
