Food and Nutrition Department
The Food and Nutrition Department is experiencing food shortages and substitutions. At this time, it is impossible to provide county-wide menus with specific foods listed each day. This means that each cafeteria will be providing the highest quality, student favorite meals possible, just not the same meal at every school. We regret the uncertainty this creates for parents and students. Be assured that as the supply chain strengthens, Food & Nutrition will return to our customary, familiar menus. Thank you for your patience and understanding.
