Food Insecurity During this Crisis

More than 500,000 of Georgia's children don't know where their next meal is coming from. See our factsheet here. And even more than that, many rely on the School Breakfast Program and the National School Lunch Program for low-cost or free lunches during the school year. During the summer, there are other programs that Georgia's most vulnerable children rely on for nutritious meals. That means an interruption like this one can be devastating.

The USDA has approved two waivers, submitted by the Georgia Department of Education, to extend alternate meal service flexibility. This will allow schools to serve students' meals through USDA-approved meal service options, at state-approved sites throughout the community. This is similar to the way schools and districts offer student meals during the summer months.
