School cafeterias always seem to invoke images of mashed potatoes being dished up with ice cream scoopers and kitchen staff wearing hair nets but during the regular Los Alamos Public School board meeting Tuesday night, the Los Alamos Middle School cafeteria was creating a far different vision.
The image of a cash-strapped department was what board members received.
Having previously asked for $10,000 to cover expenses for the cafeteria, which has the only functional kitchen in the district, Business Manager John Wolfe said an additional $25,000 was needed.
The board approved the request but agreed the issue needed to be further reviewed because as newly elected vice president Joan Ahlers said, “I don’t see how we can continue to do this.”
Wolfe told the Monitor Wednesday a survey will be conducted and data will be presented to the board.
The cafeteria funding will come from lease funds.
June Gladney, purchasing manager, explained LAMS Principal Donna Grimm urged the school board to support the cafeteria.
Gladney said Grimm had a gut feeling that if the middle school does not have access to food, achievement and scores will go down.
