Food changes vital in Sandy's aftermath

W. Va. school district had to think fast when power was lost.

Nov. 13—Milk is only good for so long. Kanawha County (W. Va.) school officials experienced that firsthand last week after Superstorm Sandy caused extended power outages in some facilities.

As county maintenance and facility workers worked to do what they could to help get schools up and running, Miller said she and her staff had to ship old food out and new food in. Most schools receive two food deliveries a week, and Miller said she likes to have a two-day supply of food on hand in every school's freezer just in case.
