US Senator John Conryn announced that the Department of Agriculture has extended its waiver to allow Texas schools to provide free meals during the summer.
The waiver avoids the National School Lunch Act requirement for schools to serve foods in a group setting.
“The pandemic has infiltrated so many aspects of our lives, including Texans’ basic needs like the ability to put food on the table. I’m grateful to the Biden Administration for extending this waiver so Texas children won’t have to go hungry this summer when the school year ends.”
Cornyn stated in a press release.
