COVID-19 Resources for School Nutrition Programs

As the new school year begins, many are wondering what the new “norm” will look like for school nutrition. Several districts have been serving and delivering meals non-stop since March, while some are gearing up for their socially-distanced kitchens for the first time. No matter the situation, there are several resources and trainings available to help support your program during this uncertain time.

Hand sanitizer and masks.
