Meals prepared locally for Fresno Unified School District students

Tuesday, August 23, 2011

With Fresno Unifed students now back in school district employees are keeping busy in both the classroom and the kitchen. The district provides more than 85,000 meals a day, including breakfast, lunch and snacks.

Half of those meals are prepared inside this 100,000 square foot warehouse in Northwest Fresno.

While menu items change daily, special items are made for about 1,000 students who have allergies or specific needs.

The district has to follow state mandated nutritional guidelines. Still, at the end of every school year students are surveyed on what they like and don't like.
