MESA COUNTY,Colo. (KKCO) - Students at Central High School can expect to see some big changes when they return to their school cafeteria.

Over the last year and a half, District 51 has been working on expanding Central's lunch room. The new improvements include an expanded eating area for the students as well as more space for kitchen staff. Students will also get more lunch options with a sandwich shop and soup counter.

Dan Sharp with District 51 Food Services says, "Right now we are going to have healthy options, the whole grain sandwiches, yogurt with fresh fruit and salads, that we offer every day at every school in District 51 are going to be offered in every line here at Central High School."

With more than 800 meals served a day Central feeds almost twice as many students as other schools in the district.

Healthier school lunches have shown to impact behavior and educational efforts of students.
