The USDA announced Tuesday that it would extend federal waivers to allow students access to free school meals until Sept. 30. Diane Pratt-Heavner, director of media relations for the School Nutrition Association, said the organization is still concerned about funding for expanded meal services and hopes the expiration of waivers is pushed out even further because remote instruction may continue in the fall, but SNA applauds the move to ensure students and families will maintain access to curbside meals.
