Supply Shortage

Due to the food and supply shortages that we are currently facing, we will be limiting the Extra’s for Main Entrée’s, to only 1 Extra Main Entrée a day, per child.

We are working closely with our distributors and manufacturers to secure the items needed to support our program. While it is out intention to serve the posted menu items each day, please know that this could change due to the current shortage's.

Sorry for the inconvenience and we hope to reevaluate this decision in the near future. Thank you for your cooperation and understanding.
