BTW Amy was my intern preceptor. Shout out to Amy for teaching me how to be a lunch lady <3
Stephanie Bruce

Full Circle!!! You are both Shining Stars!!!
Jennifer McNeil

Speaking of local produce - are others receiving produce through USDA’s Farm Box to Families? Tell us about it if so!
Debbi Dodson
20:47
Love Frog Hollow Peaches! I have them shipped all the way to San Diego all summer long.
Jennifer McNeil
21:50
Welcome to anyone who joined after we typed in introductions. Feel free to still introduce yourself!
Stephanie Bruce
22:03
No, it can't be used as part of the meal so we passed. It was too much to handle with the number of meals we are serving. We don't have the extra space.
Amy Haessly
22:05
We're starting with Farm to Family boxes next week. I'm so excited!!!
Anna Severns
22:34
Amy, do you know who is distributing the Farm to family boxes for your locations?
Parisa Mohammad
22:36
hello! we are starting the boxes on Wednesday
Amy Haessly
23:09
Sunrise Produce is going to distribute. They're dropping directly at one of our serving locations the day of distribution.
Anna Severns
23:21
can't wait to hear how it goes!
Holly Hungerford Cocking
23:28
I would love to see pictures of these boxes.
Jennifer McNeil
23:38
Hi Everyone - What updates do you have on your reopening school/fall plans this week?
Christina Hecht
24:05
I am blown away by everything you all are doing and want to work to capture your innovations and heroism - and send some stories to D.C.
Parisa Mohammad
24:13
Nothing new for fall. We were just notified of Summer schedules.
Kat Soltanmorad
24:25
We have started CSA boxes thanks to Tahoe Food Hub! They are donating up to 20 boxes a week for families in need. Organically grown produce within 100 miles from our district boundaries
Stephanie Bruce
24:36
Keep the photos coming too. They are great!!
Christina Hecht
24:48
I, too, would like to see photos of the Farm to Families boxes.
Jacqueline Ibarra
24:49
San Diego County is just starting to talk about summer programs for child care that limits children to groups of 12. A constant group of 12. That *may* be an indicator for what to expect for schools
Michael Jochner
24:58
Just getting linked to local farms via Yousef. Hopefully next week.
Marc Milton
24:58
No boxes in DUSD...not enough storage space given the number of sites/meals we have going.
Marc Milton
25:28
No plans for fall...first "opening school" district committee meeting today
Stephanie Bruce
25:36
I am working with our local date farmer to create our own Coachella Valley produce boxes.
Stephanie Bruce
26:31
We are using the CARES funds for extra duty, and addtional equipment right now.
Stephanie Bruce
27:07
There is no money for meals from FEMA I am told
Kat Soltanmorad
27:16
Hoping Hero Act will include 55% reimbursement for revenue lost.... fingers crossed it doesn't get amended before passed.
Susan Dalandan
27:46
You in CA have an awesome way to connect with local farmers through your own homegrown CropMobster. If you haven't used it, check it out and jump on board! Free!
Stephanie Bruce
27:48
There is releif for lost commodity entitlement in the Heros Act
Jennifer McNeil
29:31
For those in California - How have you been approaching the disaster claim form? We know it’s not specific to COVID-19 and states it is for schools that are totally closed. We’re hoping that bit is revised, but has anyone on the call submitted this yet?
Kat Soltanmorad
29:58
Hopefully it stays in place before passed--Commodity entitlement losses.
Stephanie Bruce
30:19
Even though we are serving at schools. The schools are still "CLOSED". We are serving curbside, so we are applying for all sites.
Jacqueline Ibarra
31:35
Can we dig in a bit about the waivers in the HEROES act? Currently the “ask” is to push the USDA (SecAg) to date and post waiver applications from state agencies. Is this a hard enough ask? How can we advocate?
kristen tekell
31:39
Curious if anyone has been award $$ from the grant by GenYouth yet?
Leslie Pring
32:32
applied to Gen Youth and have not heard back except that they were going to be taking longer than expected to respond to districts requests
Kat Soltanmorad
32:34
Jennifer, we can't double dip -we need to wait to see how FEMA responds.
Kat Soltanmorad
32:43
For our district
Stephanie Bruce
32:54
I haven't heard back on GEN YOUTH either.
Michael Jochner
33:02
Nothing from GenYouth. MHUSD is awaiting FEMA
Emily Cena, Ramona Unified
33:05
Ramona submitted ours this week. We claimed reimbursement for meals we would have served at the sites that are not doing Seamless Summer emergency meals. Since the form states "schools were closed and meals were not served to children," I didn't think we could include the closed schools that are serving emergency meals.
Dylan Hatami
33:28
11 of our schools were awarded grants from GenYOUTH in West Contra Costa USD
Kat Soltanmorad
36:08
No word from GenYOUTH for TTUSD. We have reached out to anyone who provided grants/support in the past...received $10K to support our single use containers and brown bags costs which is ridiculous as opposed to serving bulk.
Kat Soltanmorad
36:17
nice!
Jacqueline Ibarra
40:49
How do we advocate for waiver extension?
Katie Dooley
41:13
No Kid Hungry has been advocating at the federal level
Katie Dooley
41:23
CDE has applied for all extensions
Katie Dooley
41:46
I would also check with CSNA/SNA
Stephanie Bruce
41:56
The guidance for SSO and SFSP during summer is that they encourage us to follow the meal pattern knowing there are supply chain issues
Melina Barker
41:56
Do you happen to know if Oregon is included in the FFVP?
Jacqueline Ibarra
41:57
Thank you
Nora Stewart
42:11
Thanks Katie for all of your advocacy!
Michael Jochner
42:34
Thanks Katie!
Leslie Pring
42:38
We need to advocate for waivers extended to cover AT least the first half of next school year since it wont be the typical school day- if staggered or blended learning we will have significantly less ADP
Kat Soltanmorad
42:54
CalSNA is supporting CDE for waiver extensions through the summer.
Katie Dooley
43:16
Leslie--we hear that 100%! Our current priority is to get them extended through summer
Katie Dooley
43:45
I think once things become clearer about what school will look like in the fall, we will continue our advocacy efforts/asks on that front!
Leyla Marandi
44:32
Leslie I agree fall is right around the corner and important to think ahead. If students will not all be present daily at campuses, there will be a need for some type of modified operations. Thanks Katie for keeping an eye on this too :)
Gail Gousha
46:32
What does our workforce look like with fewer meals being served. We are serving 8,000 fewer meals and I am staffed for 18,000 meals. Do I need to layoff personnel to staff for only 10,000 meals? Lots to think about
Jennifer McNeil
47:26
Hi Everyone - Thanks for all of the great info in the chat box! Feel free to type in any questions for Chef Brenda regarding p-EBT.
Michael Jochner
47:27
Depending on sanitation requirements, more staff might be need to keep food areas safe.
Erica Lee
47:50
Can a preschool child receive the EBT?
Erin Primer
47:56
If a DC family does not get their card in the mail, can they apply after 5/22 to have it sent to them? We have a few DC families who said they have moved and I'm not sure if their address is updated with the state.
Lisa Herberg
48:10
I agree, already thinking about how to provide onsite meal service and multi day to go packs for online learners at the same time. We are a high school district already successful for the most part with online learning so I do not see that going away
Debbi Dodson
48:17
Is p-EBT specifically a California program?
Mickinzie Lopez
48:22
Hi Erin, they can apply anytime before 6/30
Jennifer McNeil
48:25
Yes, Erin - If they don’t get it they can get this in the mail.
Jennifer McNeil
48:43
Debbi - this is nationwide but states have to be approved individually. Each state has a different roll out scheme.
Tammy White
48:56
Can we see what the form looks like, page by page
Emily Cena, Ramona Unified
49:02
p-EBT: Should siblings with extended benefits expect to receive their card automatically, or plan to apply?
Leyla Marandi
49:02
Yes Debbi you can see the states who are offering the program here: https://www.fns.usda.gov/snap/state-guidance-coronavirus-pandemic-ebt-pebt
Stephanie Bruce
49:13
Gail, we are developing several scenarios and staffing to present to my boss.
Sally Spero
49:39
What about Extended DC students who are not DC in CALPADS?
Kat Soltanmorad
49:41
We can mail a P-EBT card to any address. Whether it’s a county mailbox, a friend or family’s mail box, or a community organization that can receive mail on behalf of the community. Families with children who receive CalFresh, CalWORKs, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits are directly certified and will automatically receive a P-EBT card mailed to the address we have on file. Most families will get their P-EBT card in the mail between May 12 and May 22, 2020. If the address on file is incorrect or needs to be changed, they may contact the P-EBT helpline at 833-780-0353 and we can reissue a card to the new mailing address. The family must have a mailing address to receive a P-EBT card. They are not going to be available for pickup.Families with children who are eligible for free or reduced-price meals and who do NOT get CalFresh, CalWORKs, Medi-Cal or Foster Care benefits must apply online before June 30, 2020. The online application will be available beginning May 22. This application will allow the f
Michael Jochner
49:42
@ Lisa - likewise. we're drawing up plans in encompass both distance and on site learning/feeding
Katie Dooley
49:58
Emily--for families with multiple children, all siblings benefits will be loaded onto the eldest siblings card
Leyla Marandi
50:01
Here’s the Code for America site where the app will be opening soon: https://ca.p-ebt.org/en
Kat Soltanmorad
50:03
The above is from CDSS.... many of our families will not get the card due to our postal system and not being able to pay PO Boxes.
Susan Dalandan
50:21
For those talking about advocating for waiver extensions, our state tells us the barrier is at the USDA federal level; they are finding the regional FNS offices are advocating for extensions as well.. We are using our Senators and Congressional delegates to advocate with USDA for waiver extension, along with the assistance of the national organizations, FRAC, No Kid Hungry, etc. We are also doing sign on letters using local examples of hardship without the waiver extension and signed by our local and regional anti-hunger organizations.
Kat Soltanmorad
50:22
If the address on file is incorrect or needs to be changed, they may contact the P-EBT helpline at 833-780-0353 and we can reissue a card to the new mailing address.This number was not in the toolkit etc that I could find
Stephanie Bruce
50:24
Where is the money for this benefit coming from?
Jennifer McNeil
50:41
Kat - that is so sad about your community :(
Kat Soltanmorad
50:42
USDA funds
Stephanie Bruce
50:49
So our meal reimbursement?
Jennifer McNeil
50:53
This is from the CARES act right?
Susan Dalandan
51:03
P-EBT is funded from the CARES act.
Jennifer McNeil
51:03
I think it was extra funds from CARES act
Emily Cena, Ramona Unified
51:14
Will the card be accompanied with some sort of paperwork to show the family how much money is on the card, and for which students? It's possible we are unaware of some household siblings that will need to be added
Terra Carlson
51:33
For p-EBT, what if a student is homeless and family does not have mailing address?
Jennifer McNeil
51:38
Good Q Emily
Jennifer McNeil
51:58
Also good Q Terra!
Stephanie Bruce
51:59
Ironic that we can't use CARES Act money to offset the lost meal reimbursement
Jennifer McNeil
52:16
Yes but fingers crossed for HEROES/FEED the Children!
Susan Dalandan
52:19
Our guideline is that P-EBT is a supplement to summer meals, so families will be able to take advantage of school/summer meals and have the P-EBT benefit.
Stephanie Bruce
52:26
All my fingers are crossed! LOL
Jennifer McNeil
52:33
And toes
Emily Cena, Ramona Unified
52:35
^Not to mention, lost a la carte revenue
Mickinzie Lopez
52:42
Terra, there are some systems in place for homeless. Reach out to p-EBT hotline for more info.
Kat Soltanmorad
52:51
This is not CARES act funding from what I understand.
Jennifer McNeil
52:53
I know Emily - that is the thing no one is talking about. And paid meal local revenue :(
Terra Carlson
52:54
Thank you!
Paloma A Perez Bertrand
53:02
Question: The students that did not qualify for free and reduced meals whose situation recently changed due to COVID (a parent lost his/her job, etc.) would be able to apply?
Kat Soltanmorad
53:18
Its the "Families First Coronavirus Response Act" ….
Jennifer McNeil
53:21
Paloma - yes but technically they should fill out an application first
Leyla Marandi
53:29
on the USDA page it says it is funded through Families First Coronavirus Act
Jacqueline Ibarra
53:37
When did CA begin allowing for newly eligible? We hadn’t heard that they were approved yet.
Kat Soltanmorad
53:57
As of May 7
Paloma A Perez Bertrand
54:06
Thanks :)
Stephanie Bruce
54:09
Paloma, they will not get the full $365. Only the amount from when they qualified. So if they qualifed as of June 1st. They will get $57
Kat Soltanmorad
54:30
Stephanie, CDE said yesterday it will be retroactive to the day school closed.
Stephanie Bruce
54:51
Dept of SS says otherwise.
Kat Soltanmorad
54:59
March 2020: $68 per childApril 2020: $120 per childMay 2020: $120 per childJune 2020: $57 per child
Jennifer McNeil
55:02
Kat that was my understanding but that is a good question.
Stephanie Bruce
55:13
It was stated on the webinar last week.
Katie Dooley
55:18
It will be retroactive for kids that were eligible prior to school closures, I believe
Jennifer McNeil
55:19
I think eligibility goes back to the last day of school, no? That is a good question for us to clarify.
Leyla Marandi
55:26
Love the market match!
Kari Johnson
55:35
I have heard that meal sites are not able to afford to distribute food at lots of different sites this summer? As a result of that, are the meal sponsors losing money, which is contributing to them consolidating their efforts at a small number of sites.
Kat Soltanmorad
55:43
I'm on PPL CalSNA, yesterday CDE shared it would be retro; its based on day of closure not day of eligibility.
Katie Dooley
55:44
if a family just became eligible as a result of COVID, their benefit would be dated to when they became eligbile
Stephanie Bruce
55:46
To the day of the closure
Jennifer McNeil
55:49
I would think it is retroactive because the application doesn’t ask for evidence of WHEN the student became eligible
Jacqueline Ibarra
55:55
Does anyone have a link to newly eligible information? This was the information we were given 2 days ago “We just learned that CDSS submitted an amendment to their P-EBT plan. The amendment, if approved by FNS, would make newly FRP-eligible students (i.e., individuals who are deemed eligible for FRP meals via FRP applications after 3/15) eligible for P-EBT. This hinges on FNS' decision, but it's a good step forward for CA."
Kat Soltanmorad
56:02
I'll email CDSS they are quick to respond
Jennifer McNeil
56:03
The app is three questions so technically they wouldn’t know when you became eligible
Stephanie Bruce
56:09
Katie has it as I understood from the webinar last week
Leyla Marandi
56:23
Thank you Chef Brenda!!
Kat Soltanmorad
56:26
https://www.cdss.ca.gov/home/pandemic-ebt
Katie Dooley
56:28
Thank you!
Tammy White
56:34
Can we see the form?
Kat Soltanmorad
58:24
Exactly Jennifer! And we could adjust the date to school closure; that's why CDE shared it would date of closure. I'm asking for clarification.
Leyla Marandi
58:58
we will be so much wiser on wednesday :D
Anna Severns
01:00:13
I know the No Kid Hungry webinars are posted fairly quickly after they are live, does anyone know if AND and CDE will do the same?
Katie Dooley
01:01:16
If it is recorded, I imagine it would be here: https://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/he/hn/covid19webinars.asp
Anna Severns
01:01:26
thanks!
Katie Dooley
01:01:28
although it looks like it takes them a while to get them up there
Jacqueline Ibarra
01:03:05
Confidence + vulnerability (sometimes we don’t know it all and need to share when we have questions or doubts!) :)
Leyla Marandi
01:04:26
^^ yes!
Jennifer McNeil
01:04:35
Be Brave!!
Jacqueline Ibarra
01:04:38
Yes!
Jennifer McNeil

Blast USDA in DC for waiver extensions :)

GREAT TIP! We can do that!

Erica Lee
01:07:05
Funding updates and waiver checklist. These calls are so helpful, thank you for your work to compile this information each week!
Leslie Pring
01:07:11
would enjoy hearing about what other districts will do for their point of sale setup for next year- will they have pin pads, scan cards, roster? with social distancing we are trying to strategize how that might look with an altered school day
Christina Hecht
01:07:24
Call your representatives in Congress and Senate and give the staffer answering the phone a message about your needs - and things that are helping you work well. This information can influence how legislation is written and how members vote.
Jacqueline Ibarra
01:08:11
USDA Waivers should we contact Kristen Hyatt, Acting Deputy Administrator, Child Nutrition Programs ?
Sally Spero
01:09:21
What if the Extended DC child is NOT at a CEP?
Amy Haessly
01:09:44
We're just starting our back to school planning and we're exploring sending kids home with lunch to avoid having them in the cafeteria. Any ideas if that will be allowable? Does that require a waiver to not have the meal "during the school day"? It might require breakfast in the classroom and then lunch to go.
Jacqueline Ibarra
01:09:45
Can anyone HELP someone apply (do it over the phone?)
Emily Cena, Ramona Unified
01:10:56
I expect we will receive a lot of questions from families, wanting to know why their cards don't include all the kids in their home. Who do they call for assistance?
Lisa Herberg
01:11:04
POS pin pads have scanners, will require scanning ID card and no cash. Service on Speedline 6ft apart markers. Do not have the staff to pack and deliver meals to classrooms. Depending on how many days students come to school per week may have one day next day shelf stable meal pack on line to pick up at same time. If students only attend once per week then an after school distribution with mulit-day frozen meal packs. Thinking about how to pre-order and record those meals
Nick Anicich
01:11:14
Thank you BRENDA!!
Bridgett Hankerson
01:12:03
Do they have to do seperste applications for each child?
