Community Eligibility Deadline Extended


The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) has extended the deadline to opt in to community eligibility for the 2015-16 school year. For some local education authorities (LEAs), the decision process to elect to participate depends on approval of governing bodies with administrative control of LEAs. Additionally, LEAs may seek support of various partners and stakeholders. In light of this unique decision process, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) is extending the election deadline until August 31, 2015. State agencies were requested to distribute this memorandum to their LEAs as soon as possible. Click here to read the full memo from USDA.
