USDA WAIVER OPTIONS FOR SCHOOL FOOD AUTHORITIES EXTENDED UNTIL JUNE 30, 2022
You must still sign up for free/reduced lunches if you meet the criteria. Doing so helps in other funding sources for our schools.
New! USDA has provided additional flexibility to help School Food Authorities (SFAs) wanting to implement retroactive claiming of school meals under NSLP/SBP, SSO, or SFSPuntil June 30, 2022.
The decision as to which option to select rests solely on the local education authority, the need within the local school corporation, the capability of food service staff to provide quality meals, and the approvals of the state agency and local health department.
New! Waivers are available until June 30, 2022. USDA has the right to withdraw this approval subject to the availability of funds.
