New Central Kitchen will serve four Alhambra high schools

Alhambra Unified School District’s new central production kitchen opened on August 15 to serve the four high schools in the district, World Journal (世界日報) reports.

The new kitchen will provide 5,000 servings of breakfast and 9,000 servings of lunch for students daily to Alhambra High School, San Gabriel High School, Mark Keppel High School, and Century High School. The plan is to expand the service to the other 13 schools in the AUSD in spring 2014.

Vivien Watts, executive director of the AUSD Food and Nutrition Services, said the AUSD had planned to open a central kitchen for the 17 schools since 2010. About a third of the school districts in the San Gabriel Valley area have a central kitchen, including Arcadia, San Gabriel, and El Monte. Watts told World Journal that compared to an individual kitchen, a central kitchen has unified quality control and management to meet the federal government’s standards for student nutrition. In addition, the central kitchen can reduce operation cost by controlling inventory and shipping.

A member of the kitchen staff identified as Rudy told World Journal that the central kitchen will provide a variety of dishes, including hamburgers, pizza, pasta, tacos, orange chicken, teriyaki chicken, and sushi. In addition, the kitchen will provide fruits and vegetables to ensure balanced nutrition.
