U.S. Schools Find That Cafeteria Upgrades Are An Expensive Undertaking

May 17, 2014: 12:00 AM EST
School districts nationwide are moving to upgrade their cafeteria food preparation equipment to provide more attractive, and healthful meals to their kids. But the special blenders, food processors, walk-in freezers, salad bars, pass-through coolers and warmers are expensive, and it’s difficult to pay for the stuff through regular operating funds. To fill the gap, schools are trying a range of money-raising techniques, including bond programs and highly competitive federal grants. But despite the aggressive efforts, a survey of school food service officials found that 88 percent of districts still need at least one more piece of kitchen equipment.
