USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) Extends Three National Feeding Waivers

The USDA Food Nutrition Service (FNS) has extended the following waivers nationwide through August 31, 2020:

  • Non-Congregate Feeding: FNS is allowing meals to be served to children outside of the normally-required group setting to support social distancing.
  • Parent Pickup: FNS is allowing parents and/or guardians to pick up meals and bring them home to their children.
  • Meal Times: FNS is waiving requirements that meals be served at certain standard times to allow for grab-n-go options. This also allows for multiple days-worth of meals to be provided at once.
