SFSP and SSO Sponsors: Required Record Keeping in TX-UNPS
On May 18, TDA provided guidance to Seamless Summer Option (SSO) and Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) sponsors regarding immediate recording keeping actions that needed to be taken in TX-UNPS. Additional details can be found here.
Civil Rights Training Resources
Below are two resources that summarize states’ Civil Rights obligations when interacting with customers and providing services to all potentially eligible and program participants. These documents should be disseminated to appropriate staff and volunteers during this time. Note that these documents do not serve as a replacement for the annual training requirement. Contracting entities should make every effort to ensure that staff receive proper training as soon as possible.
No Child Present Guidance
USDA has approved for State Agencies to develop a plan to allow parents to pick up meals without their children present. Contracting entities must notify TDA of their intent to utilize this option by completing this intake form. Refer to our quick reference one-pager for more information on this waiver, and contact your Education Service Center for additional guidance.
Hot Topics entries will be removed from this section once fully incorporated into the Meal Service Operations FAQ from TDA. Please refer to the FAQ for additional policy guidance.
