New Resource: Meeting Students’ Nutritional Needs During a Pandemic

On March 18, AASA and the Food Research Action Committee released a resource that is how-to-guide for superintendents looking to provide breakfast and lunch to students as districts deal with school closures.

Specifically, the one-pager provides an overview of the federal options open to school districts, (1) The Summer Food Service Program, and (2) the Seamless Summer Option. Additionally, the guide offers resources from USDA about applying for each program, and best practices of non-congregate feeding options for districts.
