The Big Walnut Local School District is participating in the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) Seamless Summer Option (SSO) for the entirety of the 2021-2022 school year. This means that our school district is required to provide free 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.
One of the impacts of the COVID-19 Pandemic is 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. For example, due to driver shortages, we did not receive our normal milk delivery this week, so we will be substituting water and juice at some buildings.
Due to unforeseen circumstances, last-minute menu changes and product substitutions may occur. Be assured that 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, along with nutritional information, are posted on the district website www.BWLS.net
