Fort Leavenworth Dining Hall to Provide Jobs for the Blind

A new dining hall at Fort Leavenworth is providing job opportunities for workers who are blind. Federal and state laws give blind individuals the opportunity to manage food services in public buildings. The Department of Social and Rehabilitation Services helped land the five year contract. Michael Donnelly, with SRS, says the dining hall will be managed by a blind entrepreneur and will create jobs for others with disabilities.

The dining hall opened last week. It employs 50 people and can serve 1500 meals a day.
