OUSD Looks to Revamp School Lunch Program

It may have slipped slightly under the radar, but a few weeks ago the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) passed an ambitious $1.5 billion Facilities Master Plan that outlines a wide range of projects the district wants to implement in the next five to ten years. Included in the plan is an estimated $44 million that OUSD hopes to budget toward revamping its school lunch program.

The proposal is based on the recommendations of the Berkeley-based nonprofit Center for Ecoliteracy, and it sets some far-reaching goals, including the creation of a central commissary kitchen and adjacent 1.5-acre farm, plus the refurbishing of dozens of outdated school kitchen facilities.
