Bethel High School gets $7 million for cafeteria

    KYUK-AM reports that the school currently does not have a cafeteria, at lunch the gym is split in half so some students can eat while others have class. Other students wander the school's halls during their lunch hour.

    BETHEL, Alaska (AP)  Bethel Region High School will receive $7 million in state funding for a new kitchen and cafeteria.

    KYUK-AM reports that the school currently does not have a cafeteria, at lunch the gym is split in half so some students can eat while others have class. Other students wander the school's halls during their lunch hour.

    Lower Kuskokwim School Board Chairwoman Susan Murphy says the biggest reason for the new project is to consolidate all the different kitchens the district is currently using. By not having a central kitchen, the district needs to staff and stock a variety of different locations.

    Murphy says the construction of the building likely won't happen until next year.
