The Santa Barbara School District is considering revamping the district’s lunch preparation practices so that all meals would be prepared in one centralized kitchen. Though the proposal is not expected to come before the school board until later this month, the district’s nutrition services director Frank Lihn said the tentative proposal calls for the construction of a large-scale, modern kitchen at Santa Barbara High School; lunches would be ferried to the district’s various cafeterias. According to Lihn, the new system would result in a “more efficient and higher quality” lunch service. The district currently operates 12 kitchens that serve 21 schools, although the lion’s share of food preparation falls on the Santa Barbara High facility, which provides for roughly 40 percent of the district, as well as for Montecito Union schools.
