ARA BRINGS OLYMPIC TASTE TO DAYTON

 ARA BRINGS OLYMPIC TASTE TO DAYTON
 DAYTON, Ohio, April 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Most of the area's business


people and administrators probably won't find time to compete in the Olympic Summer Games in Barcelona -- no matter what kind of shape they're in.
 But if they're clients of ARA Services, they will get a chance to sample the Olympic experience.
 ARA is the official food service manager of the Barcelona Games. They will present a preview of the international cuisine that will be served to the world's finest athletes this summer at a dinner for clients and guests in Dayton on Wednesday, April 29.
 Jim Chandler, ARA district manager and host for the evening, said the dinner for clients and guests at Polen Farm will feature a sampling of the training foods to be served to the 15,000 athletes, coaches and staff members from 165 nations participating in the summer games.
 According to Chandler, the typical Olympic Games meal will include seven hot entrees, two soups, grilled items, a salad bar, an abundance of vegetables and starches, as well as a wide selection of breads, fruits and, yes, desserts. ARA will play an integral part in the food service operations which include serving more than 2.4 million meals during the Summer Games.
 A typical Olympic athlete consumes an average of 5,000 calories a day, Chandler said, although some weightlifters may consume up to 8,000 calories a day.
 Serving the athletes in Barcelona won't be a new job for the company. ARA provided the food service at the 1968 Olympic Summer Games in Mexico City, the 1976 Summer Games in Montreal, the 1984 Olympic Winter and Summer Games, and the 1988 Olympic Summer Games in Seoul, Korea.


Chandler said ARA's grocery list for the Barcelona Games is a mammoth one, including 500,000 pounds of meat and poultry, 550,000 pounds of fruit, 50,000 gallons of milk, and 110,000 loaves of bread.
 ARA Services, headquartered in Philadelphia, provides a variety of services in addition to food service, including healthcare, child care, uniform rental, building maintenance, and periodical distribution.
