Dear Parent and/or guardian,
We would like to make you aware of a situation the District has been dealing with regarding our food delivery vendor, Gold Star Foods. Over the summer Gold Star acquired the only other school food distribution company in Southern California, A&R Foods and has been struggling to fulfill food orders for their school district customers in Los Angeles and Orange Counties. Consequently, Gold Star has been three or more days behind in their food deliveries, impacting our planned menus. The food we do receive in our deliveries is not always what we had planned to receive for our set menus. Our menus are shifting, so that we can ensure we offer as much variety for our students as possible. We understand how frustrating these menu changes have been for our students and their families. We are doing our best to quickly resolve this issue with Gold Star, but right now our priority is making sure we have food in the cafeterias for our students. In the meantime, we will communicate, as quickly and as best as we can regarding menu changes. We are working with Gold Star to resolve this issue quickly. We appreciate your patience. Sincerely, SMMUSD, Food & Nutrition Services.
