A school-meal catering service is expanding into the Tucson market.

Nutrition One LLC bought the vacant building at 2537 N. Stone Ave. for $295,000 to prepare meals for students in preschool through high school beginning with the 2019-2020 school year.

The company primarily serves charter and private schools that offer the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Afterschool Care Snack Program and the Summer Food Service Program.

Nutrition One delivers meals to the school and its employees serve the meals upon request, said Karla Johnstonbaugh-Blesh, director of business development. Prices vary by selection and school location.

Nutrition One has been catering meals on school campuses for more than 10 years in the Phoenix area, serving more than 1 million meals each year.

The company plans to hire from 10 to 12 people for kitchen prep, drivers and servers at the Tucson site within the next 30 days. Visit nutritiononeslp.com for more information.
