Public Notification – Summer Food Service Program Waiver Requests

Date:  December 11, 2018

The West Virginia Department of Education Office of Child Nutrition is submitting statewide waivers to the Mid-Atlantic Regional Office (MARO) for the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) and Seamless Summer Option (SSO) flexibilities and policies that were rescinded by the USDA Food and Nutrition Services (FNS) through SFSP 01-2019 Summer Food Service Program Memoranda Rescission.  The goal of these waivers is to reinstate the rescinded flexibilities and policies to allow for efficient and cost-effective program management and reduce the administrative burden for sponsoring organizations and the WVDE Office of Child Nutrition Staff.

Information regarding the approval or denial of these waiver requests will be posted here and will be provided to all sponsors via email once USDA makes the determination.
