Sometime during the last week of Christmas break, someone got into the storage freezer at Grizzly Hill School on the San Juan Ridge and took about 40 pounds of locally raised, organic beef and 50 pounds of organic rice that had just been purchased for the Children’s lunches. District superintendent James Berardi says instead of using the central kitchen, Grizzly Hill PTA fundraises to buy their own organic, locally grown food to make the children’s lunches in their on site kitchen. Their latest fundraiser just took place December 18th. Berardi is not saying it was an inside job but the thief knew what they wanted.*
Berardi says the alarm System and camera pointed at the food storage box was down at the time of the break-in but it has since been repaired. If there is one positive to this he says it’s the community response.*
Berardi says it was a sad day when he got the phone call of the break-in but he’s glad to see there are some good people out there as well.
