Child Nutrition Program Meal Service During Coronavirus (COVID-19)
English

 

Although many schools and child and adult care sites have resumed serving meals on-site during school year (SY) 2022-23, meal service flexibilities may be available via statewide waivers to continue to help program operators respond to and recover from the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. State may submit individual waivers to FNS requesting permission to allow program operators to provide meals for pick-up by parents and guardians (i.e., parent pick-up).

This publication includes updated language and information about waivers and flexibilities in effect during SY 2022-23, as well as tips and suggestions for child nutrition program operators who wish to provide meals for pick-up by parents and guardians. Many of these additional tips were gathered from program operators who successfully implemented parent pick-up at their sites during SY 2019-20, SY 2020-21 and/or SY 2021-22.

This publication may be printed and shared with state agency staff, program operators and stakeholders and community members
