We've also been approved to be paid for "to-go" meals that we hand out in place of congregate dining.
Our school district is providing free meals for all kids under 18 yrs old. Similar to the summer feeding program. They distribute it through the bus route.

I got a call from Skinny Pancake today asking about who they could talk to in NH about providing prepared food deliveries to low income populations. They are working under a grant from Vermont state to do this type of community support now and are hoping to be able to do the same in NH by producing the products in their commissary kitchen in Hanover. Who can Skinny Pancake connect to so they can help in an effective way.

thoughts about low school lunch enrollment due to paperwork issues?
This message was shared to us by our national partner Share Our Strength: Do you know a school or organization in your community working to ensure kids have the meals they need as schools close due to #COVID19? #NoKidHungry can help. Share this application for emergency grant funds: https://www.nokidhungry.org/coronavirus-grant-request
Working with clients who are applying for LTC Medicaid are waiting for months to get access to food stamps. Is there a work around for that wait time?

Thank you for the info on strategies for congregate meals and school meals. Are there other programs communities are implementing to help newly food insecure families due to COVID-19?
Is there any talk of changing the financial limits for SNAP? We work with an elderly population and they will apply but end up with only $12 or $15 so they end up refusing it.
Got Lunch Laconia (that usually provides meals in the summer) is working in partnership with the school district that is delivering daily breakfast and lunches on bus routes. On Fridays, Got Lunch is delivering bags of groceries to help supplement families access to food during this time. This program is funded through grants and private donations and receives no state or federal dollars.
Strafford County Community Action Partnership has a link on their website regarding changes in food access through existing programs during the COVID19 event
Check in with your local "End 68 Hours of Hunger" resources - they are working closely with organizations like CAP throughout the state
UNH Cooperative Extension is creating a food access story map that is going to include existing food access sites as well as new ones popping up due to covid-19 It will also help people who want to donate and help connect food and new services to people who need them
