TDA has posted Spanish versions of the School Nutrition Program household applications, household letters, and media release prototypes so that districts can immediately begin reaching out to their Spanish-speaking families.

These versions include the updated Nondiscrimination Statement (NDS) that was made available today.

USDA updated the NDS that is required on all public-facing program materials and now TDA has released new English and Spanish versions of the School Nutrition Program household applications, household letters, and media release prototypes with the new NDS included and those are available on SquareMeals.org.

Any letters, applications, or releases schools distribute must contain the updated NDS.
