Important Information from Kentwood Public Schools Child Nutrition Services
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Due to the impact Covid-19 has had on our economy and the supply chain network, we are experiencing a shortage of food and non-food supplies this school year. We have been working diligently with our partners to secure necessary supplies to serve our students on a daily basis. As resourceful as our team has been throughout the pandemic, we are reaching a point where there are shortages of certain food items. This is an issue that schools across the state and country are working to navigate, and is not unique to Kentwood.
In order to ensure that we can provide healthy and nutritious meals each and every day, it will be necessary at times to change the menu with short notice due to menu item substitutions. We take great pride in the service we provide, and will not compromise on the quality of food you expect from us. We will update you with any changes as they occur. Any parent questions or concerns in regards to this matter, please contact Child Nutrition Services 616-455-3166 or extension #79909.
Thank you for your understanding.
