Minnesota schools are struggling to feed students after their provider canceled its contract amid the labor and supply-chain chaos. 'It's kind of every district for itself right now.'

School districts in northwestern Minnesota are struggling to feed their students after their provider ended its contract because of the supply-chain chaos and labor shortage, per a report by The Star Tribune.

Food distributor Cash-Wa ended its contract with the Lakes Country Service Cooperative, which supplies 57 school districts, earlier this month after giving notice in September, The Tribune reported.

"It's kind of every district for itself right now," Jeremy Olson, superintendent of Crookston Public Schools, said. "It's week-to-week whether or not we're going to be able to get food."

He said the district was switching between temporary providers to get food "wherever we can."
