AASA Joins Statement Call for Congress to Extend Child Nutrition Waivers

On March 9, AASA joined 26 education, anti-hunger, public health and industry organizations in a statement expressing our disappointment that Congress failed to include an extension of the child nutrition waivers in the omnibus package. Without these extensions, millions of children will face a hunger cliff when they lose access to school, summer, afterschool, and child care meals on July 1, with Black, Latinx, and Indigenous populations and children in rural communities being hit the hardest.
