Action Alert: Thank You
Today, after our call to action, the USDA announced the extension of SFSP/SSO operations through December 31, 2020. These waivers help hungry children in the US maintain access to healthy school meals while making it easier for school systems to navigate enrollment.
Our combined voices helped make this happen.
However, there is still more to do. The current extension is only through December 31st, 2020. We stand with the Food Research and Action Center in asking that the waivers be extended through June 30, 2021 to address the long-term economic fallout of COVID-19.
Tomorrow as we begin Hunger Action Month, help us raise EVEN MORE awareness about hunger equity in the US. Share with your community throughout September as you participate in Beyond Hunger events and activities.
