Update on Supply Chain Shortage Situation
The Regional School District #8 Food and Nutrition Department is asking for your patience and support as we navigate new challenges.* As you may be aware, nationwide shortages and delays have affected availability of certain food items, leading to substitutions of menu items we’ve been able to offer regularly in the past. These supply issues are occurring throughout the country and are especially challenging for school systems due to the quantity of meals we serve and the nutrition standards we follow. The entire food service industry is currently faced with unprecedented shortages and massive delays or cancellations of deliveries, in addition to food service department labor shortages.

All of this means that we may need to make quick substitutions to our menu(s) based upon what we are able to acquire. We want to help limit the effects this has on our students, and we are doing our best to provide updates about menu changes as soon as possible after we identify an issue.

Please know that our number one priority continues to be providing healthy, nutritious and appetizing meals for your children, and we will ALWAYS have a meal for them every day. We appreciate your community support and patience as we continue to offer meals at no charge for all students. The good news is that free breakfast and lunch will continue throughout the school year. Participation helps our program to stay strong, as well as ensures everyone gets a nutritious meal. We look forward to serving our customers every day.
