Alabama schools struggle to get food for lunches, breakfasts

Alabama schools are continuing to face food shortages, education officials say.

Disruptions in the workforce needed to serve and deliver meals — along with supplies of food and packaging materials — are behind the shortages, Al.com reported.

State education officials say every school district Alabama is facing shortages to some degree.

Alexander City Schools recently warned parents that it’s experiencing supply chain issues with its food vendors. In recent weeks, the school system hasn’t received food deliveries due to suppliers who are short on supplies, drivers and warehouse employees. The school system asked parents to feed breakfast to their students at home, if possible.

In southeast Alabama, Dothan City Schools recently asked parents last month to prepare for a possible shift to remote learning due to their food supply issues.
