A motion was made by Parker and seconded by Anderson to approve the regular minutes of the February 11, 2013 meeting. A motion was made by Reed and seconded by Kearns to approve the agenda of the March 11, 2013 meeting. Wendy visited both Chadron and Gordon-Rushville food service sites. It was a positive experience. She gathered several ideas to try here in Hay Springs. New regulations state that students must have a vegetable or fruit plus two other items on their trays. Serving sizes of breads and meats have been relaxed by the USDA but the calorie limits remain the same. The quote received from Infinite Campus would require $4642 for the first year and $334 each year after for year support to implement the food service side of the program. There would also need to be hardware purchased and staff training to consider. Chadron and Gordon-Rushville both use a contracted food service provider. To implement a contracted food service program, you must first receive permission from the state, use the sealed bid process, and in most cases lose local purchasing. Hay Springs received 1st place for their new breakfast program. This recognition comes with a $5000 award. Wendy plans to use this award to improve the current salad bar. No motion. Anderson and Langford attended the Lister-Sage meeting. Jodie Garrett resigned. Bev Lee is the new president and Krystyn Turman replaced Lavern Hankins.
