Rogersville City School child nutrition staff has enjoyed welcoming students back to school! This school year, thanks to federal pandemic waivers, all students will be eligible for free meals, regardless of family income. Please know that we are taking appropriate measures at RCS to ensure school meals are served safely. The return to in-person learning, free meals for students, and serving a large majority of our population, coupled with unprecedented nationwide issues with the supply chain has resulted in a few menu changes with little or no notice.
School meal programs nationwide are experiencing many of the same supply chain issues that have impacted restaurants and grocery stores throughout the pandemic. We are working very closely with our distributors to secure both the food and supplies needed to support our meal program. However, the availability of these items is ever-changing and without notice. When changes to the menu become necessary, we will attempt to substitute the featured menu items, to the extent feasible, based on the products we are able to obtain. We will continue to strive to provide variety in our offerings based on the availability of products.
Thank you for your understanding and patience, as we work through these supply chain issues. Please know we will continue to uphold the utmost quality and preparation of all foods served and will ensure that all students are nourished with healthy meals and ready to learn.
