Meeting Called to Order: 1:04pm

Review Agenda & Minutes – Approved as published.


Riverview Elementary Update:

  • Idea of having students dismiss early and pick food up at office discussed. Doesn’t protect privacy.
  • Suggested High School students sign confidentiality agreements, school custodians, food service staff, retired teachers, teacher aides, etc. – pros and cons.
  • Doesn’t appear to be feasible at this time. Continue to consider Riverview for future expansion.


2016-2017 Program Plans:

  • Including program information/enrollment at registration for schools is preferred. Jan will check with Tri-County. Redgranite sends registration information in July and prefers starting in early October.
  • Special thanks to Patti Miller for delivering meals to Tri-County Schools. Transporting totes to Tri-County next year will need to be explored with Patti’s replacement. If it works logistically, it is part of the position expectation to continue this involvement.
  • Expansion – Coloma Elementary School has FRL rate of 49.6% (2015-2016 school year). Decision to explore expansion if they are interested.  Jan will contact administrator and report back at next meeting.


Financial Update:

  • Received $500 donation from ThedaCare Foundation. Gift card request made to Berlin Walmart.
  • Program reports for Berlin Area Health Foundation and Community Foundation of Central Wisconsin for 2015-2016 program funding are due by June 30, 2016.
