December 1, 2021 - USDA continues to offer flexibilities in response to public health needs and to ease administrative burden, while still promoting nutritious meals. In August 2021, Team Nutrition released the “Planning for a Dynamic School Environment” webpages which provided valuable information about meal service flexibilities and procurement strategies for school year (SY) 2021-2022. This web content has been updated to include additional information on waivers, P-EBT guidance, and policy documents, and is now also available as designed, printer-friendly PDF (Portable Document Format) documents at the following links:


Both the web content and PDF documents can be accessed from the Planning for a Dynamic School Environment webpage. Team Nutrition’s recent newsletters on “Making Last-Minute Substitutions to your School Meal Menu” and “Are You Adding to Meals from Home? Using Offer Versus Serve at School Lunch” are also available for viewing from this webpage.
