Albany food program still in the red

Despite finishing a three-year plan to become self-sufficient, Albany's food service program continues to run in the red.

Albany contracts with Sodexo for its food service program. Sharon Short, the program’s general manager, and John Stone, district manager, updated its financial status Monday for the Albany School Board.

The report shows the program kept expenditures well in check last year but didn't meet its revenue expectations. The result landed the program a net loss of $89,455 for 2011-12.

Sodexo has subsidized deficits in the past and will do so again, Short said, with a $35,000 check this year.
