USDA has extended the following waivers for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP), effective through September 30, 2020. ADE intends to opt-in to the waivers to allow LEAs in Arizona that have not yet started their academic school year and would still be eligible to operate SFSP to do so during this time. Once the LEA begins their academic school year, the LEA must stop serving meals under SFSP and begin serving meals under NSLP. LEAs that have already started their academic year (virtual or in-person) do not have the option to operate SFSP though these waivers.

LEAs eligible to operate SFSP through these waivers must contact Health and Nutrition Services on the application process. 

The COVID-19 Resource Page is updated daily as new information comes in. ADE recommends that you frequently review the webpage to answer your operation questions.
