Because of large savings in the House food budget, students living in the Sacramento St. Cooperative House will probably receive a $50 to $60 board rebate this year, and may also enjoy cuts in board rates next Fall.
The House charged $260 this year for daily breakfast and dinner, but expenses per student have been kept down to about $200. Low labor costs are one reason for the savings, since the House employs only one part-time cook, the rest of the work being done by students.
In addition, only 28 people eat at the House, which makes much expensive machinery, such as steam tables, unnecessary.
