Can School Foodservice be Eco-Friendly? You Betcha!
In the 2008-2009 school year, Director Paul Baumgartner and the GRPS Nutrition Service embarked on a mission. We installed energy saving appliances, motion sensing lights, tankless water heaters, an energy efficient exhaust system and a 44 panel solar array to help produce electricity and reduce CO2 at our main production facility (the Nutrition Center).

We are very proud of our efforts to help save our planet's resources and to create a learning tool for students studying alternate energy sources.
