In case you missed it, we’ve got quite a buffet of resources when it comes to school meals.

Catching Up on School Meals: For the past 2 years, all students have received school meals at no cost thanks to federal USDA waivers during the COVID-19 pandemic. But those waivers expired on June 30. What does this mean for school meals in North Carolina?

In our FWIW (For What It’s Worth) blog series, we are attempting to break down the intricacies and confusion around school meals and hopefully shed light on the “worth” of school meals. The school meals program is extremely complicated so we are taking bite-sized portions and serving them up each week. You can catch up on the past blog posts below and look for a new topic next week!
