Challenges at the Center "When going into any type of central production, having drivers on board is critical and can be challenging if you're down a driver for a day," Harrison says. "We are hiring driv- ers who have a dual role. They will be delivering and picking up foodservice equipment from school sites as well as delivering meals when needed." At the finishing kitchens, Harrison and the managers continue to explore rescheduling and efficient production throughout the entire day. In the central production facility, she will be adding packaging and sealing equipment to make individual salads and fruit cups more economical. No doubt this center offers innovative ways to provide food to smaller schools, enhanced catering services to the community and training opportunities to Hillsborough County employees. This facility also offers a solution to ris- ing labor costs and assists in maintaining high-quality food, nutrition and customer services. A win-win for all.
