Federal Update: Extension of USDA Nutrition Waivers

Administration Update

Today, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Perdue has announced the extension of three USDA nutrition waivers until August 31, 2020.

According to the press release the waivers include:

• Non-Congregate Feeding: FNS is allowing meals to be served to children outside of the normally required group setting to support social distancing.
• Parent Pickup: FNS is allowing parents and/or guardians to pick up meals and bring them home to their children.
• Meal Times: FNS is waiving requirements that meals be served at certain standard times to allow for grab-n-go options. This also allows for multiple days-worth of meals to be provided at once.
