Hello Liz - thank you for supporting CN programs for our nation!
Abby Halperin | Center for Ecoliteracy
43:45
Liz, thank you so much for this! It’s worth nothing that the COVID-19 relief emergency funds that will help make up 55% of the difference for schools and child care are for March - June 2020. Still work to do for this current school year, here’s hoping it can be included in the next stimulus package.
Kat Soltanmorad

YES! Universal Meals! Go Academy!
Kat Soltanmorad

While I applaud the EBT program, we are finding it has effected our meal particpation (lowering it), as we are offering free meals for students while they learn vitrually. Anyone have ideas as to how to maximize both benefits?

Hello Lori, yes, we have heard that lower participation in school meals may be an unintended consequence of P-EBT, we are hoping there is more funding support coming for CN programs in the near future for the months after June 2020.

Jiwon Jun
01:13:44
Re: USDA Q&A (thank you, first off, for providing a summary of the Q&A), but for the CACFP attendance record and school meal application update, do you recommend we wait to implement any changes until we hear updates from CDE?
Stephanie Bruce
01:14:07
Just make meals universally free. That is the best reimbursement increase we can get
Barbara Hughes
01:14:46
I don't know if a question asked earlier was answered, so forgive me if it was...Liz is a dietitian and the Senior Director of Legislative and Govt Affairs with the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
01:15:04
Yes Stephanie, Jared and Angeles -who joined today- are with Nourish CA and they are focus on Universal Free Meals so kids whose families make just above the federal limits ($34K for a family of four) can still access meals. Especially important since there is no immigration status test for school meals, unlike CalFresh.
Laurel Goins
01:15:10
I agree with Stephanie. Universal free meals is the way to go!
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
01:15:16
Thank you Jared and Angeles!
Mickinzie Lopez
01:15:21
Jiwon - YES, I would recommend waiting for the CDE townhall this month for more updates!
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
01:15:45
Here is Nourish CA factsheet showing the disconnect between federal income limits and the cost of meeting basic needs in CA. https://nourishca.org/publications/fact-sheet/2019-food-insecurity-factsheet/
Stephanie Bruce
01:15:47
The guidance on the $0.55 should be out this week, then the state agencies have 30 days to apply for those funds
Deirdre Kleske
01:16:05
Yes, Stephanie Bruce, or at least make it easier for many more schools to qualify for CEP and receive funding to make it financially viable.
Paloma Perez Bertrand I LunchAssist
01:17:09
Thank you so much Liz!!!!
