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.
