About the Event
Over the last three years there have been nationwide waivers and flexibilities issued by USDA to help the CACFP community respond to the COVID-19 pandemic and ensure access to CACFP meals in an ever-changing environment. The Department of Health and Human Services has declared the end of the public health emergency which provides an end date for these flexibilities. Congress also passed an act, the Keep Kids Fed Act, that provided additional funding that is expiring this summer. Join the CACFP Roundtable, your CACFP community, USDA FNS Western Region, and CDSS CACFP Branch to hear more about what information is currently available, how CDSS is planning for the impact of the waiver expirations, and to discuss how lessons learned by utilizing waivers can be incorporated into future program operations.
