Bozeman Public Schools has reached an agreement with Monforton School District to provide hot lunches for the K-8 school district, which remains short staffed in its food services department.

The Monforton School Board approved the agreement on Tuesday evening, which will see Bozeman food service delivering a hot lunch entrée option.

With one food service employee in each building, Monforton was providing cold sandwiches for the first few weeks of the school year. In the new agreement, Bozeman’s central kitchen will deliver prepared lunches weekly that have been cooled to USDA standards, according to Monforton Superintendent Darren Strauch.
