Food Service during possible COVID-19 Closure

Sunday, March 15, 2020



The Nebraska Department of Education, Office of Nutrition Services (NDE) has been granted a waiver through the USDA Food & Nutrition Service to allow schools and community organizations to serve non-congregate meals through the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) in the event that a school is closed because of COVID-19. The USDA has also granted flexibility for schools not normally eligible to participate in the SFSP (<50% F/R) to provide meals through this program in the event of an unanticipated school closure because of COVID-19.

Elwood Public School will be working on setting up a meal plan for our students during any possible closure. Thanks for everyone’s offer to help our students get the nutrition that they so very much need. This is a very fluid situation and at this time we don’t know exactly what this looks like but we will be working on a plan immediately.
