COVID-19 Best Practice Information: Food Assistance Programs for Low-Income Households with School-Age Children   [open pdf - 532KB]

From the Background: "[1] Many children from low-income households rely on no-cost or low-cost school breakfasts, lunches, and other child nutrition programs to meet their nutritional requirements. On a daily basis, one in seven U.S. households with children are affected by a lack of access to food, or food insecurity. The majority of these children depend on meals received at school from the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program. More than 30 million children benefit from the National School Lunch Program, a federally assisted meal program traditionally provided on school days. [2] The following is a list of key findings and considerations for jurisdictions and communities regarding the ongoing coronavirus pandemic disease (COVID-19) operations across the country. These are best practices for consideration and do not constitute and should not be considered as guidance in any way."
