COVID-19 and School Meals | Resources and Response

Much like our organization and industry, I'm sure most of you are scrambling to create some semblance of order in our new realities. The COVID-19 pandemic is affecting so many aspects of our lives, and just when we think we have a handle on it, there’s another twist. 

Right now, our school food service professionals are on the front lines of this crisis. They’re working very long hours, creating makeshift cafeterias, and ensuring that our most vulnerable populations have food and nourishment. We are incredibly grateful for their service to our country.

In the United States, there are 50 million students enrolled in our public school system, and 30 million kids rely on school cafeterias for their daily meals. School closures impact families who depend on school meals for nourishment, which are predominantly people of color and households struggling to make ends meet.

The Chef Ann Foundation (CAF) is providing national support where it’s needed, and right now school districts are scrambling just to meet the needs of their new remote feeding programs. We have developed a COVID-19 & School Food: Resources & Support webpage with links to our partner districts’ remote feeding plans, along with topline information about federal guidance during this time. In addition, we have links to partner sites that provide other information and helpful resources for school food programs.

We are all part of the solution in this challenging time. We are thankful for our partners and supporters who are alongside CAF during this season of unknowns. You are part of the important work of feeding our nation's children at school. Thank you for walking with us — in good times and hard times.
