As the school year continues, school nutrition teams are working diligently to ensure that students’ favorite, nutritious menu items are made available to sustain a learning-enriched school day. However, obstacles such as persistent supply chain disruptions and labor shortages are proving to be a challenge for all components of the school nutrition network and no one solution has guaranteed success for all major players.

Communicating these obstacles to students, parents and the community can be challenging for school nutrition professionals. SNA’s newest animated video, available in both English and Spanish, explains the realities of supply chain issues and labor shortages in easy-to-understand language.

SNA encourages its members to link to these videos on district websites, on social media channels and in digital communications.
