School board approves food services contract, grant

The Wrangell School Board voted 3-0 June 23 to award a food services contract to Nana Management Services (NMS).

The cost of the contract is estimated at $63,453 for 174 serving days, and it replaces the school-run program, though all personnel currently employed in the food service program will maintain their positions and jobs. School board members had previously tabled the motion until language regarding the temporary use of a car owned by NMS was added.

Nana Management Services, headquartered in Anchorage, is a subsidiary of the Nana Development Corporation, according to the Web site.

The board also voted 3-0 to accept a vocational education program grant totaling about $40,000. The grant comes from the Department of Labor and Workforce Development, Division of Business Partnerships’ Career and Technical Education program.

The final amount of the grant will be negotiated between the school and officials from the program, officials said.
