Supply Chain Disruptions in School Nutrition
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, we are seeing nationwide disruptions to manufacturing, supply and distribution channels. You may have experienced this yourself when you’ve tried to order something online or buy something in the store and what you’re looking for isn’t available right now.
What does this mean for school meals? In short, it means that we’re having trouble getting certain foods and supplies. Your student(s) may notice that we’re serving different items than we’ve served in the past or different items than were listed on the menu.
This situation is out of our control and something that school districts all across the country are experiencing. We are doing our best every day to come up with solutions to these challenges.
We will continue serving our students a variety of nutritious foods. While there may be some menu changes, please know that everything we serve will continue to meet nutrition guidelines set by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA). All schools that operate the National School Lunch Program and the School Breakfast Program must follow these guidelines. We will also continue to accommodate students with special diets and allergies.
We remain committed to providing our students with the nutritious meals they need to grow and learn. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
As a reminder, school meals are free for ALL students again this school year!
If you have questions, please contact the Student Nutrition Services Department at 316-973-2160.
