Editor's Insight: The Enterprise, the newspaper reporting this story, should try to find out what happened here. The school district should not be losing money on its foodservice by hiring a professional foodservice contractor.
This article quotes the school superintendent as saying that the losses were due to not enough students taking part in the government reimbursed free lunch program. This does not explain why Aramark incurred the losses. The taxpayers deserve a more complete explanation. 01-31-11 Elliot Maras
