NOW: South Bend Schools hire new food vendor

SOUTH BEND, Ind. – The South Bend Community School Corporation announced a new food vendor after running out of food at three different schools a week ago.

Students at Riley High School, Washington High School and Dickinson Fine Arts Academy were affected by the shortage.

Superintendent Dr. Todd Cummings said that the issue needed to be addressed.

“We saw there was an issue, we had a problem, we jumped in, we deployed our central office folks who worked alongside front-line food and nutrition workers, to get the problem solved,” Cummings said.

The food vendor is Chartwells and although they were scheduled to take over school cafeterias in October, they will now start immediately.
