USDA Providing Resources for Dynamic School Meals as the Nation Continues to Navigate COVID
These webinars (THIS WEEK) are specific to the National School Lunch Program. Many of our fellow CACFP operators also operate NSLP along with their other child nutrition programs so we thought it important to share.
Thank you for all you've done and continue to do over the last school year and going into the new one to ensure the children in your communities are receiving healthy meals.
