During the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Families First Coronavirus Response Act gave the USDA the ability to offer waivers for childhood nutrition to supplement school meals. While it may seem that our schools are returning to normal, staffing issues and nationwide supply chain disruptions make it necessary to continue offering these waivers. These issues unfairly affect students in rural areas and many of the students in the Southern Tier can be left without proper nutrition.
These waivers will expire on June 30, 2022, unless we can convince Congress to act. Learn more about why these waivers are so important by reading the Food Research and Action Center’s School Meals report 2020-2021 School Year.
