Construction at the Pasco School District's maintenance and storage facility will increase its cold storage for food by 50 percent.
The $240,000 project at the facility at 3412 N. Stearman Ave. is meant to accommodate the increased need for food storage for the growing district, said Randy Nunamaker, the director of support services for the district.
Construction began July 9 and is anticipated to be completed in September, he said.
The district daily ships food from the facility to schools throughout the district.
The facility has had several cold-storage expansions since the building was built in 1985.
