USDA Meal Waiver.  Free Meals for Enrolled Students Through the end of the 2020-2021 School Year

*Emphasis added

October 16, 2020

Dear Parent/Guardian

On August 31, USDA released to the media an extension of free meals to all kids. (https://www.usda.gov/media/press-releases/2020/08/31/usda-extends-free-meals-kids-through-december-31-2020) The meals will be provided through the summer meals program (SSO). This is a little different than National School Lunch Program (NSLP). Meals need to have components that are required by Federal Guidelines to be reimbursed.

October 9, 2020 USDA announced they were extending this waiver through the end of the 2020-2021 school year. This waiver is expected to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to COVID-19.

Weber School District CNP is participating in this waiver through an “Open Restricted” site waiver. Which means every school will be serving free meals to enrolled students only, for safety and control. This will be available through the end of this school year.

The reimbursement from the waiver is for a full meal at the school. If a student brings a lunch from home the milk will be considered “Ala Carte” and we will need to collect .50 Cents. We are encouraging a student that brings a meal from home (if they would like to buy a milk) to select a milk, juice, and a roll so it could be considered a reimbursable meal. Then the milk can be taken as a free meal.

If a student wants to purchase a second meal, that meal will be charged $3.50, the price of a non-reimbursable meal.

Thank you,

The Child Nutrition Department
