Food service returns to LAHS

Schools: The lunch option will begin in the second semester

By Jennifer Garcia

More change is coming to Los Alamos High School for the second semester.
Not only will students have new schedules and a new building in which to attend classes, but they will also have a new lunch option.

Summit, a food service company based in Albuquerque, will offer lunch service to LAHS students, which has been absent for several years. Students have had to go off-campus to get lunch or purchase food from various clubs on campus when it was sold. Distributive Education Clubs of America (DECA) also offered various snacks for a quick bite.

Though Summit’s food service is new to the high school, it is no stranger to the district. They began serving students at the middle school Aug. 15, and then began serving Mountain and Piñon elementary schools later that same week. By mid-September, Summit was serving all of the elementary schools.

The process of getting food service into the various schools began on April 30, when the district sent out a request for proposals.

Two companies, Chartwells and Summit both submitted bids in response to the RFP. Interviews were conducted June 22 at the Central Office Complex on Trinity Drive. Both Summit and Chartwells officials were interviewed.

After the interviews, the district entered negotiations and chose to contract with Summit.
