Here’s the scoop for the week

Please Contact your Congressional Representatives re: Child Nutrition Waivers

I have been in contact with Noelle Ellerson Ng of AASA regarding the bills mentioned below and learned AASA supports these efforts and needs our advocacy. 

Click here learn more and inside the blog you will find yet another link so that you can contact our legislators seeking their support of these bills. 

Without either of these bills, the nutrition waivers will expire June 30, 2022. Additionally, the end of the waivers will mean flexibility around meal patterns will end regardless of your ability to access the food necessary to meet regulations, and the Seamless Summer Option program will end and you will once again have to collect Free and Reduced Price Lunch applications. 

Thank you for your support!
