The San Francisco Unified School District wants better lunches for its students. The Examiner reports that although San Francisco has been a leader in making cafeteria lunches healthier, the district wants to take it a step further. The current meal provider, Preferred Meal Systems, ships frozen, precooked foods from three facilities around the country.
“In San Francisco, of all places, with such a sophisticated food culture, to have food shipped in from Chicago seems to be a dissonance,” said Zenobia Barlow, executive director of the Center for Ecoliteracy, a nonprofit advocacy group.
But now the district is seeking a new provider to further improve the quality of its food and the participation in its meals programs. As its existing contract ended, district officials decided to explore replacement providers, O’Keeffe said. The district ultimately extended the relationship for six months while putting the contract out to bid.
