School Meal Supply Chain Announcement - Riverside
School Meal Supply Chain Announcement - Riverside

Dear Riverside Families,

The Riverside Community School District  is participating in the United State Department of Agriculture (USDA) Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the entirety of the 2021-22 school year. This means that our school provides no-cost meals to all students. This program provides additional support and flexibility for our district to continue serving meals to children while maintaining safety measures and managing the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Included in the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic are nationwide supply chain and product availability shortages. Disruptions are due to a lack of availability of raw ingredients and labor to produce, unload, and transfer food products. Some food and/or beverage products normally provided to students may not be available or arrive as scheduled. Due to unforeseen circumstances, last-minute menu changes and product substitutions may occur. Be assured meals will remain balanced, healthy, and plentiful. We ask for patience and understanding as we do our best to meet the needs of your children.

Our breakfast and lunch menus  are posted on our district website www.riversideschools.org and are featured on our phone app.  These are updated daily and provide the most update information concerning menu changes.

Please contact me or our Food Service Supervisor, Jackie Moore, with any questions at 712-484-2212 or email tmitchell@riverside.k12.ia.us or jmoore@riverside.k12.ia.us.

 Sincerely,

Timothy Mitchell

Superintendent

Riverside Community School District
