Funding for universal free meals is provided by U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) waivers, allowing local school divisions and other federal meal program sponsors to implement the Seamless Summer Option of the National School Lunch Program. These waivers are effective through June 30, 2022. The waivers support access to nutritious meals while minimizing exposure to COVID-19.


Meals are available to all children including those learning in-person or virtually and regardless of race, color, national origin, sex, age or disability.
