Garden City Community College will receive a $1.7 million federal grant to help expand its food and animal science program.

The grant from the U.S. Department of Labor will go toward training workers to inspect restaurants, meat packing and food processing plants, cafeterias and other places that serve food to the public.

The college says there is a growing demand for inspection services because of a new federal law that gives the U.S. Food and Drug Administration the authority to order food product recalls. The measure also requires more inspections and focuses those inspections on potential risk.

GCCC is one of seven partners in a consortium receiving similar grants.
