This year we started a new way to serve meals to our students: a vending machine. We now offer reimbursable meals through a vending machine in addition to the cafeteria. Meals are accessible all day to students, before and after the bell! We have increased lunch participation 5% as of September 2015 and that number continues to grow.

How did you accomplish your goals?

This project took a lot of initial planning and is still a work in progress. It took almost a year to purchase, train, and plan for it. With the collaboration of CNP and administration, we have made this project a success.
