(WFXR) — On Thursday, two different school districts within the New River Valley announced that staffing and supply issues are impacting the items on their menus.

Officials say that the School Nutrition Programs have aimed to provide nutritious meals for all students, even when schools were closed and students were learning virtually amid the pandemic.

According to Pulaski County Public Schools, between the supply challenges and the days when School Nutrition Teams are dealing with absences without substitutes to fill in, this affects the menu choices for the day.

“PCPS cares for every student in our school system and making sure they have nutritious meals is our first priority,” the district wrote on Facebook on Thursday, Sept. 30.

If you have any questions about the School Nutrition Program in Pulaski County, you are asked to call 540-994-2523.

Meanwhile, Giles County Public Schools posted a similar statement on social media on Thursday.

School officials say they try to inform everyone if menus need to be changed, adding that they appreciate every student who chooses to eat breakfast and lunch at school.

If you have any questions or concerns about the School Nutrition Program in Giles County, contact the Food Service Supervisor Christy Lawson by calling 540-921-1421 ext. 17, or emailing clawson@gilesk12.net.
