supply chain

Hello parents and caregivers,

As many if not all of you are aware, our supply chain is experiencing severe challenges this year, and staffing shortages are at an all-time high in many areas.  

This note lets you know that the Child Nutrition Department at Minden Public Schools is no exception.  We would like to reassure you that we are doing our best to navigate these circumstances while providing nutritious breakfasts and lunches.

Frequent substitutions are the norm, and the students have been handling this very well.  Many seem to be willing to take the ever-changing menu as an adventure.  I apologize if this is creating hardship in your household.  Please know that I will continue to plan and publish my menus.  I try to follow them, and as the supply chain straightens out, we will again be able to serve according to our planned menu.

Thank you for your patience as we deal with this situation.  If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me.  

Also, if you know of anyone who would like an excellent part-time job, have them contact me.

Thank you again for your understanding,

Shelia Sanford

Child Nutrition Director

Minden Public Schools
