Whole-Child Nutrition

School Nutrition Programs in School Year 2020-2021

One of the highest priorities for Ohio’s child nutrition program, which is fundamental to supporting the whole child, is to ensure students receive nutritious meals in the midst of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) waivers during school year 2020-2021 allow in-school and non-congregate take-home meal service with a parent/guardian pickup option through the National School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. The Ohio Department of Education’s Office of Integrated Student Supports is developing school year 2020-2021 child nutrition guidance and resources.
