USDA Extends Three Nationwide Waivers for School Nutrition Programs


USDA.jpgOn May 15, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue announced the extension of three nationwide waivers:  Non-Congregate FeedingParent Pickup, and  Meal Times. These waivers provide operators of child nutrition programs the flexibility and support needed to continue to feed children during the COVID-19 pandemic. Secretary Perdue stated “As our nation reopens and people return to work, we want to continue to be flexible since there is not a one size fits all approach to feeding kids. Extending these waivers throughout the summer ensures local operators can make plans that best suit their communities and keep children fed.  All three waivers have been extended until August 31, 2020.
