SEQUIM — The Sequim School District’s new central kitchen is expected to be ready for use in April.
The kitchen is expected to be largely completed before a March 26 ribbon-cutting ceremony at the kitchen at 221 W. Fir St. The ceremony will be from 11:30 a.m. to noon. Tours will be offered.
Superintendent Gary Neal anticipates that construction crews will complete the final details over spring break, April 1-5.
School Board members toured the site Monday.
The building is the culminating piece of a three-year, $5.75 million capital project levy that voters approved 2017.
The levy paid for demolition of unused portions of the Sequim Community School and rebuilt the central kitchen facility on the same property.
Meredith Arseneau, food services director for Sodexo, said he expects the kitchen to make about 600 lunches and 300 breakfasts daily for Sequim’s elementary schools and to support Sequim Middle and Sequim High schools with additional meals as needed.
