Methacton School District has replaced the entire cafeteria staff with Philadelphia-based food service giant Aramark. 42 workers and managers have lost their jobs.
Aramark has agree to offer comparable service and cut high school lunch prices by $1.00. Aramark has also agreed to give consideration to furloughed workers for comparable jobs, but rehire is not guaranteed.
Food service is expected to be a break-even operation but has lost money for the last five years. About $1 million dollars according to Superintendent Timothy Quinn.
Time will tell if this was the right decision. Aramark’s contract is for one year.
