Food Supply Shortages In Allegheny County Hitting Schools Hard

By: KDKA-TV News Staff

PITTSBURGH (KDKA) - A major food supply issue is taking shape at schools in Allegheny County.

The Pittsburgh Public Schools Director of Food Services tells our news partners at the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette it's caused by the distribution industry facing staffing shortages and rising costs.

The superintendent of Woodland Hills says they're experiencing the same issue.

Earlier this week, the Baldwin-Whitehall School District sent a letter to parents explaining that the district was facing its own supply shortages.

They're asking those who can pack their own lunches to do so.
