Food Supply Shortages

At David Douglas School District, we know the importance of school meals in fueling both healthy minds and bodies. Even though school meals may look a little different this year, please know that your school nutrition team is working hard to ensure students have safe, nutritious, and appealing meals. We want to share how our district is working to overcome food supply and labor challenges related to the COVID-19 pandemic so that students continue to receive school meals.

At times, our school district may not receive expected food orders due to supply chain shortages. As a result, your school may need to make last-minute changes to the menu or substitute a different brand of a food product. We know that students have favorite menu items and are working hard to provide them whenever possible. We are also thinking ahead to identify alternative food items that are nutritious and appealing for the students.

If your student has food allergies or a special dietary need, be assured that meeting these needs and keeping your student safe remains a priority for us, and we will continue to provide meal modifications.

We appreciate your patience, flexibility, and understanding as we work to provide school meals in a challenging and changing environment.


P-EBT / Pandemic EBT

P-EBT benefits are provided through Oregon Department of Human Services.

The P-EBT Program period for School Year 2020-21 and Summer 2021 officially closed Nov. 30, 2021.
According to the Oregon Department of Human Services and the Oregon Department of Education, who administer Oregon’s P-EBT benefits, all outstanding benefits were dispersed to eligible families.  

Eligibility was determined by district reopening status from the 2020-21 school year, not individual status.
If your family moved during the 2020-21 school year, or changed school districts, DHS may not have updated information on file. Contact them about your current information.

For the most updated information about Oregon’s P-EBT visit pebt.oregon.gov and Pandemic EBT QA.
