This was the first in a series of back-to-school webinars focused on feeding kids during the 2020-2021 school year, as we continue to navigate the coronavirus pandemic. This webinar focused on understanding the nationwide waivers— the waivers available, the waivers not available, possible meal service models, and limitations and challenges. We also explored options for financial recovery including FEMA Public Assistance Grants, CARES Act funds and the Community Eligibility Provision (CEP).
