JUNEAU - The Juneau School Board approved a new food service contract Tuesday evening that school officials said will lead to better lunches for the city's students.
The Juneau School District will change companies next year and contract school food work to Nana Management Services, which is based in Anchorage.
The contract allows Nana to charge $2.50 a meal, according to David Means, the district's director of administrative services.
Last year, the state gave the district a failing grade for its food service program and said students had received spoiled or out-of-date food on several occasions.
Nana's plan includes salad bars and a hot serving table for elementary and middle schools.
