Last week, at the invitation of the White House Domestic Policy Council, SNA briefed members of the Administration’s Supply Chain Disruptions Task Force and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) officials on the impact of supply chain issues on child nutrition programs. Seven SNA members participated in the call, including members of SNA’s Executive Committee and operators representing small and large districts from across the country.
The group detailed various procurement challenges school nutrition programs have faced this school year, expressed appreciation for regulatory waivers and the announcement of new funds, and urged the Administration to provide additional support for programs struggling to secure foods and supplies for students. SNA continues to conduct weekly calls with USDA officials regarding supply chain disruptions and is urging members to share their stories regarding the impact on programs and utilize SNA’s Supply Chain Resources.
