AASA and Allied Organizations Request an Extension to USDA COVID-19 School Nutrition Waivers

Today, June 3, 2020, AASA and 84 allied education and nutrition organizations submitted a letter to the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture (USDA) urging for an extension to all COVID-19 related school nutrition waivers until September 30, 2020, so that districts can continue to serve meals to students and families throughout the summer. 
 
As we've highlighted in previous posts, AASA is appreciative of USDA's extension to the Non-Congregate Feeding, Parent Pickup, and  Meal Times Waivers. However, the department must continue allowing these additional flexibilities to ensure the transition to summer is seamless for states, districts, and the community.
