Information About The Program
SUPPLY CHAIN DISRUPTIONS
There are several factors at play that will result in TCS adopting a “new” normal meal service. Return to in-person learning, universal free meals, serving 90% of our population coupled with unprecedented nationwide issues with the supply chain has resulted in menu changes with little or no notice.
We are working very closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure both the food and supply items needed to support our program, however, the availability of these items is ever-changing and without notice.
While it is our intention to serve all the menu options each day at every school, supply issues will not make this possible throughout this school year until the supply chain disruption is remedied.
When changes to the menu become necessary, we will attempt to substitute the featured menu items as best we can, to the extent we are able to do so, based on the products we are able to retain.
We will continue to communicate at the Pk-5 level daily with available entree items based on what we receive. This communication is to ensure students are aware of their main choices and the ability to continue pre-ordering prior to lunch service each day.
The number of offerings and variety we have at the middle and high school levels will undoubtedly lessen, but rest assured we will continue striving to provide variety based on the availability of products.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during these trying times and know we will continue to uphold the utmost in quality and preparation of all foods served, regardless if they are our preferred menu options or necessary substitutions.
