MY CHILD’S SCHOOL IS CLOSED, AND THEY RECEIVE FREE/REDUCED PRICE BREAKFAST AND LUNCH. HOW WILL THEY BE ABLE TO ACCESS THESE MEALS?
During mandatory school closures, school districts can operate meal distribution programs similar to summer meal programs for students. This can involve meals being available for pick up at school buildings or centralized locations, or meals being delivered to students. The Federal government has released additional funding to support these programs. Because COVID-19 requires social distancing in order to stop the spread, many school districts are offering these meals for consumption at home instead of allowing students to eat them together at the school building or pickup location. Please check with your child’s school district in order to see what plans the district has in place to continue your child’s access to food.
