Dear NPS Families,
I’m sure you have all seen in our local stores and restaurants where there are shortages of items being available. Norwich Public Schools Food Service is also experiencing these shortages due to the limited product availability, nationwide transportation challenges, and supplier labor shortages.
We are working diligently to minimize the effects this has on our students. Menu changes are highly likely at this time. However, please know that our meals will continue to meet and exceed the USDA nutrition regulations and student acceptability. We will continue to offer a variety of healthy options for breakfast and lunch.
Please read the linked memo from the Connecticut State Department of Education for further explanation: Child Nutrition Program Costs and Availability Memo
Thank you for letting us feed your children and we appreciate you!
Director of Food Services
