Summary:
We are completing year two of our second five-year agreement with Aramark to provide district-wide Child Nutrition Services. Our partnership with Aramark began in the 2010-11 school year with our first five-year, annually renewable agreement expiring in June 2015.

The Texas Department of Agriculture oversees the outsourcing of Child Nutrition Services and utilizes a five (5) year, annually renewable agreement.

We are very pleased with the overall level of performance from Aramark and would like to exercise the second renewal option for the 2017-18 school year.
 
Budgetary Impact:
The 2017-18 renewal proposal from Aramark includes a guaranteed return to the District of $962,265. As in prior years, a portion of that return will be reinvested into the food service program. Some examples of reinvesting into the program are:
• Digital Menu Boards
• Additional food choices (i.e. Pizza Line, Stir-Fry Station)
• New vending machines
• Miscellaneous small wares and replacement equipment
• Additional serving lines at CH9 and CHS
• Miscellaneous computers and POS/Office equipment
