MATTAWAN— The Mattawan Consolidated School District is considering food service privatization, according to The Kalamazoo Gazette. The district’s food manager plans to retire and the district is looking to replace her with a contracted manager.

The district has issued a request for proposals and is currently considering bids for food service management.

Superintendent James Weeldreyer told The Gazette that the advantages of using a food service contractor include greater buying power, more food marketing and the use of a company’s nutritionist.
