On October 9, 2020, the USDA Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) extended the nationwide waivers to continue the use of the National School Lunch Seamless Summer Option (SSO) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) through June 30, 2021. These waivers allow school food authorities (SFAs) to continue to serve free meals to all children 18 years of age and younger.

“As our nation reopens and people return to work, it remains critical our children continue to receive safe, healthy, and nutritious food. During the COVID-19 pandemic, USDA has provided an unprecedented amount of flexibilities to help schools feed kids through the school meal programs, and today, we are also extending summer meal program flexibilities for as long as we can, legally and financially,” said Secretary Perdue. “We appreciate the incredible efforts by our school foodservice professionals year in and year out, but this year we have an unprecedented situation. This extension of summer program authority will employ summer program sponsors to ensure meals are reaching all children – whether they are learning in the classroom or virtually – so they are fed and ready to learn, even in new and ever-changing learning environments.”
