In response to COVID-19, the USDA has released three new nationwide waivers to support access to food in the child nutrition programs. These waivers are effective immediately, and remain in effect through June 30, 2020, or until expiration of the federally declared public health emergency, whichever is earlier. These waivers apply automatically to all States that elect to use them, without further application.
The National CACFP Forum, in partnership with the CCFP Roundtable, has submitted additional recommendations to USDA that would allow CACFP to operate at its fullest capacity during this public health crisis.
