A Message From Food Service
Did You Know…..
All LPS students are eligible for free school meals during this school year. This means any LPS student may choose to have breakfast and/or lunch every school day. This is because all school districts across the country were able to receive a federal waiver to serve breakfast and lunch meals, at no charge to families, for every student, regardless of financial status.
We’re serving A LOT of meals this year! It is wonderful to see so many of our students accessing this service. So you know...here are some quick district stats about the first 23 school days in fall 2019 compared to the first 23 school days of 2021.
2019~First 23 school days:
Breakfast = 21,224 meals served in LPS
Lunch = 81,914 meals served in LPS
Total = 103,138 meals served in LPS
2021~First 23 school days:
Breakfast = 45,206 meals served in LPS (113% increase)
Lunch = 120,972 meals served in LPS (48% increase)
Total = 166,178 meals served in LPS (61% increase)
Menus occasionally need to be adjusted. There are several reasons for menu changes. In short, the national supply chain challenges that are occurring in almost every industry, also exist in food service. With schools across the country offering many more meals than ever before, due to the waiver, food supply companies are having some trouble keeping up. Additionally, the trucking industry is also facing pretty big delays due to the shortage of truck drivers, which impacts delivery of items to the suppliers. While we order a wide variety of food items each week, if an item does not get delivered, LPS Food Service replaces it with a comparable item. Here’s a good article explaining how this is affecting schools across the country: School Meal Supply Shortages
If your child is a hearty eater, he/she is able to both access a breakfast or lunch AND bring their own snack or lunch from home.
Families, regardless of household income, are able to receive these free meals throughout the 2021-2022 school year. However, families (as applicable) should still complete the Free / Reduced Application: Horizon Free & Reduced Apps (horizonsolana.com) on an annual basis, as this allows our school district to continue to receive federal funding and allows families who qualify to access additional fee reductions (ie: Pay to Participate fee reductions; AP exam fee reductions and others).
We are very thankful for the efforts of our Food & Nutrition department staff, who have worked tirelessly to respond to the increased meal service needs!
We are hopeful this information is helpful to you and provides some insights into how the Food & Nutrition Services Department of Livonia Public Schools provides for our students.
