And, ultimately, this legislation will keep more kids fed and nourished. Every kid deserves three meals a day, and everyone working to feed kids should be supported, especially in this challenging environment. #KeepKidsFed #ShareSummer
But it will save us from an unprecedented school meals crisis, and it will equip schools and community organizations with more of the tools they need to better navigate these issues
It won’t solve supply chain issues, lower the rising cost of food or solve our nation’s inflation problem. And it won’t help families whose incomes are too high to qualify for free meals but too low to cover basic necessities.
The Keep Kids Fed Act is a compromise and does not include everything that we wanted.
The #KeepKidsFed Act provides meaningful progress, but it is a first step, not a final one. This relief for schools, families and students is real, but it is temporary.
All of these action were important. They made sure that, before Congress entered recess and before child nutrition waivers expired, the Keep Kids Fed Act passed.
You joined us in writing letters, signing petitions, making calls and educating others about the issue on social media. At the same time, school and community partners shared their stories, putting real faces and figures behind this issue.
Things were looking rather catastrophic. But thanks to an amazing community of hunger fighters, partners, and across the country, we made a difference, urging Congress and the White House to work together on a solution to keep kids fed.
Without these child nutrition waivers, 1 in 5 summer meal sites would have to close and many schools would be faced with cutting funding for teachers in order to provide kids with lunch.
They provide additional financial resources to meet higher prices for food, staff, and gas tanks. And they make sure schools and community organizations can adapt their meal programs to fit the needs of local families.
For example, they make sure that schools aren’t penalized if they have to make substitutions between green and orange vegetables when the delivery truck shows up empty.
The flexibilities afforded by the child nutrition waivers have been essential for them to run their meal programs in these challenging times.
Schools and community meal providers continue to face extreme challenges in feeding kids right now, including staff shortages, rapidly rising food costs and severe supply chain disruptions.
Let's take a step back and review some key background context before #KeepKidsFed passed: Important child nutrition waivers were set to expire on June 30, but the problems they were intended to address continue and, in many cases, have gotten worse.
However, this Fall, schools will return to providing free meals to children from low-income households while charging other students a full or reduced-price for meals. This ends the practice started early in the pandemic of serving free meals to all.
Among other things, this act increases the federal reimbursement rate to schools for each meal served and allows schools the flexibility to meet nutritional standards for meals while they cope with supply shortages in the coming school year.
Last week, Congress passed the #KeepKidsFed Act, legislation that will equip schools and community orgs with more of the tools and financial resources they need to feed children through the 2022-2023 school year. Let's a take a dive into the details and how this all happened:
Kids and teens can eat right this summer! Free meals that follow USDA nutrition guidelines are served at summer meal sites across the community. Text 'FOOD' or 'COMIDA' to 304-304 to find a site near you! bit.ly/3Kvsflf
