Finally, you might be wondering what exactly constitutes a meal under our fall curbside program. In a normal school year, District 401 operates under the National School Lunch Program. For our fall curbside service and home delivery, we are operating under the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) guidelines:
This program allows us to serve all members of the community who are under 18 years of age. SFSP does not require the student be enrolled in District 401.
Current waivers are allowing us to serve SFSP through Dec 31, 2020. Upon the resumption of in-person schooling, we will reinstate our normal lunch and breakfast programs unless the USDA extends our waivers through 2021.
