Food Supply Shortages

At David Douglas School District, we know the importance of school meals in fueling both healthy minds and bodies. As we try to get back to “normal” please know that your school nutrition team is working hard to ensure students have safe, nutritious, and appealing meals.

Going into the 2022-23 school year, 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.

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.

In this video, SNA (School Nutrition Association) shares what parents need to know about supply chain issues and their current impact on school meals. Please talk to your child about the potential for these variations.

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