Food Access

Families should check with their school district or local food bank. Many states have received a waiver from the USDA that allows schools to provide meals for all children under 18 and are not required to eat on site. Feeding sites are available throughout the community and available for ALL children and not just those that go to a particular school. If you can’t locate a site in your area, call your school district and/or local food bank and they can help connect you to food in your area.
