Supply chain shortage

Big picture

Due to the nationwide food supply chain issues, this school year, we will be experiencing last-minute menu changes frequently in our Valley View District Cafeterias. Some of the changes will not be reflected on the menus posted on our website or the menus that we sent home because they will be last minute if needed. Food supply items shortages are mostly out of our control. We ask for your understanding and your patience while we all go through this difficult time. If there are any questions about this or any other subjects related to Child Nutrition, feel free to contact our department.
