More than 25 classified employees attended Silver Falls School District board meeting May 11 to express their disappointment in the current food services program provided by Sodexo.
Wearing buttons reading “Local kid. Local food. Local control,” members shared stories about the quality of the food and the increase in work load since Sodexo was given a contract six-months ago.
Robert Frost Elementary School assistant cook Ross Bryant said the district’s kitchen staff was told there would not be too many changes with the Sodexo contract.
“That’s not the case,” Bryant said. “Our work load has increased but our hours are the same.”
