Edison food service director wants to feed more students

Edison Local School District Food Service Director Shelly Brisset sounded like a Realtor at a recent school board meeting.

The only difference was, she changed the words.

Instead of "location, location, location," Brisset's message to parents was "participation, participation, participation."

Specifically, Brisset said she wants to see more children eating meals prepared by her staff.

Brisset said from August 2013 through April, her department has dished out 113,244 lunches and 25,064 breakfasts for students. Those numbers add up to 60 percent participation, she said, adding her goal for next year is at least 80 percent.

A family's participation in the district's food service program would represent a savings of $180 per child for a school year, based on the costs of food, she said.
