REbecca Ward
29:31
If we applied for the Eligibility waiver @ the beginning of the pandemic, do we need to reapply?
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
29:49
What are folks doing with applications this year in light of SSO/SFSP operations?
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
30:11
Rebecca - No need to reapply, unless you need to add/change sites
REbecca Ward
30:31
Thanks you/1
JUNE RICHARDSON
31:35
When indicating applications are you talking about meal applications or household income applications or both?
Hank Stelzl
32:02
Zoom family cooking classes, Grab-n-Grow Kits for take home gardens for families, gave away over 200 tomato plants and basil plants, CSA bags with recipes in both Spanish and English from March through August 100 plus a week.
Jacqueline Deadmore
32:16
If your district operates under CEP we don't collect any applications right?
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
32:35
That's so cool, Hank! thanks for sharing
Leyla Marandi | Center for Ecoliteracy
32:51
Wow, Hank! Amazing work. Feel free to email us videos and favorite activities to share with others :)
Brenda Ruiz
32:52
California has provided an alternative LCFF form for SSO/SFSP school districts, right?
Noi Whitener
32:57
That's way cool, yes thanks for sharing!
JUNE RICHARDSON
32:58
CEP we collect household income applications only for LCFF
Stephanie Bruce
33:00
For CA, districts need the f/r information by the 3rd week of November for 1st Interim...so LCFF information will be asked for prior to the 12/31/20 deadline. FYI
Jorge Velasco
33:10
How can I check if we are up to date with our waivers?
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
33:12
Brenda, yes there is an alternative income form
JUNE RICHARDSON
33:39
CEP we do not collect meal applications
Stacie Eilers
33:44
Any news on Verification process? I apologize if this was asked already and I missed it. :-)
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
34:01
Jorge - you should have received a confirmation for every waiver you applied for. Be sure to keep these confirmations on file
Leyla Marandi | Center for Ecoliteracy
34:12
Stacie verification update is next
Amanda Mascia
34:20
Thank you for covering this FRPM issue!
Stacie Eilers
34:22
Thank you :-)
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
34:28
Correct, June, CEP = no meal applications
Jorge Velasco
36:01
What about if I forgot to print them, is there a website I can go to so that I can print them out or save them?
Jessica Shelly
36:13
Ohio is requesting a waiver for verification this year
Laurel Goins
36:51
Is that only if you claimed meals under NSLP in CA?
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
37:00
Jorge - Check your email to see if it was archived. Otherwise, you may need to reapply to get those confirmation emails.
Margie Saidel
37:21
Sorry I was late. Did you talk about CEP? I am told that districts are worried about maintaining CEP because they are not collecting applications.
Jorge Velasco
37:27
Thank you.
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
37:52
Margie, schools on CEP don't need to collect applications
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
38:05
CEP is based on direct Certification (student matching)
Jill Whittenberg
38:17
how much is lunchassit pro?

Thank you so much.
Barbara Hughes
38:31
In San Diego, we're also running Zoom family/teens cooking and nutrition classes in partnership with County Parks and Rec. Have also partnered with school districts with Farmers to Families box distributions as well as providing funding for gardening grow kits for families. We're HHSA so it's been great to be able to support - through programming, volunteers, and funding - all of the current hunger relief and efforts during the pandemic.
Noi Whitener
38:40
First I would like to apoloise if I misunderstood you, so we are on the SFSP did Jen mention that we can't accept F/R apps?
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist

Jennifer Gonzales
39:36
what kind of documentation do you need to collect for claims? I was told attendance sheets.
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
39:44
This week’s USDA Q&A Memo up above!
Amanda Mascia
39:52
YES! Great workaround!
Rikki Torian
39:53
what if you already started verification, Oct 1, and had an end date for Nov to parents? parents are not turning in paystubs because they're free under sso
Suzanne Lugotoff
40:09
Any idea if a ROSTER is required for multi meal distribution for CACFP? At risk site.
Celia Cisneros
40:12
We used a google form to enroll our after school students.
Carolyn Vega
40:55
Suzanne, a roster specifically shouldn't be required, but you need something to count as attendance.
Noi Whitener
41:37
with the SNP Snacks we have to still do a Site Monitoring Review correct?
Noi Whitener
42:04
sorry after school snack program.
Jennifer Gonzales
42:24
CA - I was told I need to print out a site's attendance. And to use that serve only the kids that attend a grab and go sites. True? So I can't serve supper to a student's siblings if they attend another school?
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
42:27
Up for a review? Learn more about our AR Boot Camp at www.lunchassist.org/ARBootCamp
Debra Campbell
42:55
The State called me yesterday to say our school would not have a review this year they are moving to a extended year audit..
cristina obregon
43:12
Just for clarification: We still need to do Verification after all? We were told we did not have to since we are on SSO all year long. Please clarify this again.
Stephanie Bruce
44:09

Stephanie Bruce
44:21
CA is already set to distrubte
Stephanie Bruce
45:19
That is much nicer than the first round flyer. Very Nice. Thank you
Noi Whitener
45:38
sorry but your pictures are not clear to read, thank you.
Carolyn Vega
45:38
Jennifer re printing attendance -- could you write in additional names for siblings at the bottom? That's usually OK in other states as long as attendance is comprehensive and accurate. It doesn't have to be pre-printed because sites don't have to be enrolled (unless it's delivery).
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
45:38
Cristina - YES, per the USDA Q&A Memo released this week, verification is required. Such a headache!!
ALICE UY
45:41
Is this being recorded? so we can share with co-workers
Jen McNeil I LunchAssist
45:48
Hi Cristina - yes this is part of the flip flop in guidance. CDE said do verification. Then do not do it if you are on SSO/SFSP all year. Now the Nov 2 USDA says all schools must DO verification if you collected any meal applications during SY 20-21…. Brain. Exploding. :(
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
45:58
Yes, Alice, the recording will be sent out asap
Jen McNeil I LunchAssist
46:06
Carolyn - yes names can be written in on the bottom for rosters!
Laura Bullene Jacobo
47:02
Any word on who is having a Procurement Review and/or when that list of districts will be released? Nothing on CDE yet.
Jen McNeil I LunchAssist
47:07
Debra - that is great information! Did anyone else get similar information for their AR being postponed in California?
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
47:10
Noi - we will be sending all of the resources out in the f/u email!
Jiwon Jun
47:26
Hi Jen, if we serve NSLP snack to students on-site, do those snacks have to be served after the completion of the school day?
Abby Halperin
49:58
I love how @Vince explained the intersection of P-EBT and school meals to us: The extension of the P-EBT program provides a needed short term boost for families AND provides an additional incentive to fill out meal application forms. When more students in a district are qualified for free and reduced priced meals, the participation in the meal program and the reimbursements that the school district receives from the state and federal government increases. These are complementary programs that ensure that students get the support they need in both the short-term and long-term.
Deborah Kravitz
50:23
Can you share the slides on the PEBT Presentation and information please?
Susan Dalandan
50:24
Is there any information out there for the redemption rate of the original PEBT programs? Ours in PA are good for six months, so most families will have until November or December 30 to use.
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
50:56
Deborah - Yes, we will be sending out a copy of these slides and the recording within the next few days!
Leyla Marandi | Center for Ecoliteracy
50:57
Deborah, we’ll share the slides in the follow up email, plus any new info and updates Brenda has in between. We’re so grateful for her keeping us connected to this info at the state level! <3
Stephanie Bruce
51:08
So confusing.
Stephanie Bruce
51:41
Brenda you deserve a medal for being able to explain all this.
Noi Whitener
52:07
Thank you Mickinzie
Regina Salmon
52:21
So, am I right that PEBT extension will not be given to the student if school was open in August/September?
Miguel Villarreal
53:07
Thank you Brenda. We need a few simple tips to inform our parents.
Deborah Kravitz
53:14
Yes, very grateful. Thank you!
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
53:25
Regina and Susan - We will flag your questions for the discussion at the end :)
Regina Salmon
53:37
Thank you!
Erin Primer
53:38
THANK YOU Brenda!!!
Brenda Ruiz
54:10
you’re welcome! I will look at Q’s now
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
54:21
If we missed your question, we will circle back during the discussion at the end, when our speakers can answer your questions directly! :)
Stephanie Bruce
54:43
I am so excited. We are handing out Turkeys as part of the lunch and supper program for Thanksgiving.
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
54:46
For those offering holiday meals, what are some ways you’re streamlining the process for your team? How are you marketing it to families?
Jessica Shelly
55:09
USDA has confirmed in writing to our state agency that you can offer more than 7 days of meals in unique situations.
Susan Cooper
55:14
Can we claim meals served during the holidays
Michael Jochner
55:21
Thanksgiving Meal Kit = 10lb turkey, stuffing mix, mix veg package.
Jen McNeil I LunchAssist
55:27
Jessica - what state are you in? This is great insight!
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
55:31
Turkeys sound delicious!!
Stephanie Bruce
55:32
Jessica...do you have that in writing????
Stephanie Bruce
55:35
Please share
Jessica Shelly

Jessica - can you forward that information??
Jen McNeil I LunchAssist
55:45
OHIO! Woo!
Anna Severns
55:46
@Jessica, can you speak more about the +7 day meal distribution
Susan Cooper
56:02
do families pre order TD meal
Jessica Shelly
56:06
Good morning:As discussed on the call this morning, USDA has approved a longer than “weeks worth” of meals to be distributed during the upcoming holiday breaks this year if that is what fits the local model. Let me know if you have questions or want to discuss your district’s distribution scenario. Good talking with you all this morning and let us know if there is anything you need.BrigetteBrigette Hires, PhD, RDChild Nutrition Program ManagerOffice of Integrated Student Supports
Stephanie Bruce
56:33
Thank you Jessica!!!!!!!!!
Melissa Manning
57:00
Has anyone figured out how they are going to pass out meals after the holiday break is over? We are missing Mon - Tues for the week we return, because we pass out meals on Wed and Fri
Jen McNeil I LunchAssist
57:02
Amazing thank you! I will include this in information from Jessica in the follow up resources as well.
Jessica Shelly
57:10
WOW -- a turkey! Very cool
Hannah Smith
57:44
Is the +7 days of meals in unique situations available to only Ohio Districts? Or all states?
Susan Dalandan
58:12
Our school districts change the days they pass out meals to accommodate for holiday changes,
Kat Soltanmorad
58:56
Melissa, We are passing out 7 Days on Monday 11/23 curbside. And taking by appt anyone who needs meals Tuesday prior to our Wednesday weekly pickups to schedule one in advance.
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
59:20
Shout out to Susan Cooper for sharing insights on how she is serving onsite students/hybrid model! :)
Jen McNeil I LunchAssist
59:32
@Hannah - definitely check with your state agency, but if Ohio is receiving this guidance from USDA, then other states should be able to get similar approval.
Melissa Manning
59:35
Hi Kat! :D I didn't think of appointments. The staff won
Melissa Manning
59:43
't change days of service
Jiwon Jun
01:00:30
For schools that are doing on-site feeding, how are they disposing leftover liquid milk not drunken by students? Do they collect in a jug/bucket? Throw away in trash?
Brenda Ruiz
01:00:38
@susan dalandan, in California they are good for 1 year from date of issuance. each state PEBT program is implemented differently. check with PA social services dept
Jessica Shelly
01:01:18
Ohio got the information from USDA Midwest, so considering each USDA office is not always on the same page :-/ ... PLEASE check with your SA

Brenda Ruiz
01:03:16
@ regina salmon. yes. I believe that is true. the extension is only for closed/hybrid schools according to the colored tiers system at the time CA got federal approval. what’s your school and county and I can follow up? president@sacfoodpolicy.org
Leyla Marandi | Center for Ecoliteracy
01:03:57
For schools in more rain/snowy regions: I’m curious what your “back up plans” are for students who would otherwise be eating outside. Classroom? MPR?

Attitude of Gratitude, That's awesome! Thank you.
Susan Dalandan
01:06:56
In PA where it is cold already, most schools are hybrid to reduce the number of students in school at any one time. Depending on age and school, many students are getting lunch in the classroom. Others are doing timed slots, utilizing any spaces that were large enough for them to set up for social distancing, including lounges, cafeteria, and recreation facilities.

Iva Lee
01:25:50
Being that we have a new "Household Data Collection Form", that determines funding, how are schools providing the incentive to families to fill it out and return it, when all studentsare getting free meals as it is?
Jorge Velasco
01:25:52
Thank you.
Stephanie Bruce
01:26:53
Nice Logo Mary!!! Thank you for sharing
Mickinzie Lopez | LunchAssist
01:27:04
Iva - This has been a tough challenge for schools. However, we have seen some success from schools who share with families what the other benefits of filling out the form is, for the district.
Stephanie Bruce
01:28:20
Anyone else have participation decline with the first round of P-EBT was provided??
Rosa Rubio
01:28:36
We did.
Susan Dalandan
01:28:50
I spoke with our Senator rep today who said Sen. McConnell announced that in addition to the budget extension, he will start pushing for another stimulus package.
Dr. Robert Lewis
01:29:04
Stephanie, yes.
Stephanie Bruce
01:29:22
Just make all meals free forever!!!!!!
Susan Cooper
01:29:33

The nice thing about the Alternative Income Form it can be made mandatory!!
Polly Houston
01:29:55
Yes!!!!!!!!!!!
Nancy Rostomily
01:30:10
work with site principals to share the message and the importance to thier own sites
Brenda Ruiz
01:30:11
i think if school districts were the messages of the form, there would be more success vs the form coming from school lunch
Vanessa Diaz
01:30:11
We have it included in our registration packet and parent fill it out every year and anyone who doesn't our office staff is really good at following up
Toni Chaffee
01:30:16
Stephanie, Yes, we had a decline in meal service after P-EBT
Celia Cisneros
01:30:31
We had a packet mailed out before the first day of school and our income form was in there. All our students came to campus to meet their teacher on scheduled appointments the first week of school and most of our families brought their forms back!
Polly Houston
01:30:36
We also had a decline.
Stephanie Bruce
01:30:37
If classroom funding is dependent upon families economic status, than make that part of the annual enrollment form. Not our responsibility.
Stephanie Bruce
01:30:42
Kentucky is one
Jessica Shelly
01:30:45
Ohio does -- we are still collecting applications
Susan Cooper
01:30:59
We included in registration, on line
Leyla Marandi | Center for Ecoliteracy
01:31:21
Appreciate everyone’s input here!
Susan Cooper
01:31:27
We always take applications
MAUREEN Pisanick
01:31:37
We used a social media canva campaign to help schools communicate the need for application - GREAT call Jen and team!
Leslie Montano
01:31:39
Emails, text messages, flyers, website posting, 1:1 phone calls to fill out forms together, and bringing forms along with food deliveries. We also made a class competition to see which grade level could get their forms completed and returned. New incomers would also get it in their registration packet
Susan Cooper
01:31:41
for new students
