GPS Food & Nutrition Update - as of August 25, 2021
As the district food service program has been preparing to return to a more normal service and menu, we are facing unprecedented issues with the supply chain. This unpredictability in supplies will cause us to alter our posted menus with little to no notice. We are working closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure both the food and supply items needed to support our program.
While it is our intention to serve the posted menu each day at every school, supply chain issues will not make this possible throughout the school year until the supply chain issues are rectified. We will always attempt to substitute the scheduled menu item with another that is similar as possible to the extent that we are able to do so.
Please rest assured that we always provide wholesome and nutritious meals each and every day.
If you have questions or concerns, please contact the GPS Food & Nutrition office at 616.225.1000 ext. 8219.
