COVID19 Information 

Since COVID19, our vendors occasionally experience issues with product shortages.  Due to this, the food items chosen to serve your children may be limited or unavailable at times and need to be supplemented.  Staff shortages are another issue we are facing due to the Pandemic.  Please know that we strive to provide your children with the best product and service available.  We thank you for your patience and support as we continue to work through these challenges.

BF Food Systems staff will continue to follow guidance handed down by the CDC and local government.
