Garden City Community College Gets $1.7Million Dollar Grant

KSCB News - October 3, 2011 8:06 am

Garden City Community College will
receive a $1.7 million federal grant to help expand its food and
animal science program.
The Garden City Telegram reports that
the grant from the U.S. Department of Labor will go toward training
workers to inspect restaurants, meat packing and food processing
plants, cafeterias and other places that serve food to the public.
The college says there is a growing demand for inspection
services because of a new federal law that gives the U.S. Food and
Drug Administration the authority to order food product recalls.
The measure also requires more inspections and focuses those
inspections on potential risk.
GCCC is one of seven partners in a consortium receiving similar
grants.
