PDE Notice Regarding Food Supply

August 19, 2021


Dear Parents/ Guardians,

The Pennsylvania Secretary of Education, Mr. Noe Ortega, recently informed all school districts of a potential national issue that may impact food supply and costs.

Because of the pandemic, the manufacturing industry and distributers have been greatly impacted. Therefore, we may see supply chain shortages and higher costs. These shortages may begin to impact school menus resulting in a decrease in variety, and/or unpredictable last-minute adjustments.

As we work through these challenges, please know that the Farrell Area School District Food Service Department will do everything we can to provide our students with healthy, nutritious, appealing meals.  

We appreciate your cooperation and understanding in this matter.

Sincerely,

Joseph Tuchek
Director of Food Services
