On November 12, 2013 the USDA released nine memos on the summer meals programs on topics such as: Sponsors Operating in Multiple States, Mobile Feeding Options, Census Data Release, Promoting Nutrition in Summer Meals, Use of School and Census Data, Available Flexibilities, Expanding Awareness, Meal Service Requirements, and a Q and A document. Click here to access the memos. USDA worked hard to have this guidance released in a timely fashion as districts are planning summer meals now. These memos preceded a Summit on Summer Meals hosted by Share Our Strength November 13 – 14th. SNA assisted Share Our Strength throughout the planning of this summit targeted for state agencies and provided suggestions for speakers.
