GEB to discuss food service contract

Posted: Updated:

Guam - Guam Education Board members will be holding their regular monthly meeting at Finegayan Elementary School tomorrow morning. Board chairperson Francis Santos says they will be meeting with the students and staff at the campus, and will also have breakfast with them. Santos says a major topic up for discussion is the department of education's food service contract currently under King's Restaurant.

He says the board will review if the food being served is adequate, as the department uses $8 million annually from a federal funds reimbursement program to pay for the service. "There is suppose to be a study going on to get a feel for whether the food that's being fed to them is actually good, and not so much checking whether our DOE cafeterias are meeting up to par, I think the board recognizes we need to address that issue coming forward because it needs to be decided whether we are going to keep those cafeteria's open also," he said.

The meeting will begin at 8am at the Finegayan Elementary School cafeteria. In the meantime, Santos adds the board has already decided that they will use ARRA funds to outfit all the schools with surveillance cameras to prevent future break-ins. He says the schools already have the infrastructure in place, and all they need is the cameras.
