  • Proposed Rule to Restore Flexiblities: USDA Food and Nutrition Service has announcedproposed regulations to restore flexibilities for milk, whole grain and sodium requirements in the school meal programs.

  • The Pandemic Child Hunger Prevention Act, introduced by House Committee on Education and Labor Chairman Robert C. “Bobby” Scott (VA-03), would guarantee every child has safe access to healthy school meals during SY 2020-21. With a multitude of families newly-eligible for free and reduced-price meals, offering meals to all students at no charge spares overburdened schools the massive task of distributing and processing meal applications and reduces the stigma for children who depend on free meals. TAKE ACTION!

  • H.R. 7764, The Child Nutrition Relief Act of 2020, introduced by U.S. Rep. Nydia Velázquez (NY-7) and Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (NV) would allow USDA to extend all COVID-19 school feeding waivers through June 30, 2021. Extending these waivers will allow school meal programs to seamlessly continue grab-and-go meal pick up for distance learners, serve meals to students in the classroom or adjust meal service in the event of a sudden COVID-19 school closure. TAKE ACTION!
