Sep 23, 2020

The USDA has issued a waiver allowing schools to serve free meals to all children, not just students, through Dec. 31 or until funding runs out. Fayetteville Public Schools is one district that has opted in to the program. From the closure of schools in March to the beginning of August, the district has served more than 165,000 meals on 109 serving days.
