The Bellevue School District lunch menu requires creative planning due to food shortages in supply chain blockage
The variety of foods offered in the Bellevue School District has been limited due to supply shortages. Menu planning has required that school nutrition services staff become creative in providing meals that are being planned one week at a time.
More than 11,000 school lunches are served per day in the 29 schools in the Bellevue School District. The USDA provided assistance during school closures in March through September, so that BSD could provide 850,000 free meals to the community.
Nutrition Services is currently hiring across the school district. Open positions range from "transportation, substitute teaching, nursing and a variety of other fields, some of which are experiencing national labor shortages" according to the Bellevue School District site.
