Special Bulletin: COVID-19 Public Health Emergency for April 1, 2020

The COVID-19 public health emergency has created unprecedented hardship across Minnesota. In an effort to alleviate some of this burden, the Minnesota Department of Education (MDE) has submitted a request to waive the 50 percent free or reduced-price meal eligibility requirement to operate an open site in the Summer Food Service Program. Once the waiver is approved, sites in areas demonstrating financial hardship will be able to operate open sites based on area eligibility. The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) is fast-tracking these waiver requests, so we expect to have more information for you soon. If you have any further questions, please email mde.fns@state.mn.us
