Schools and Child Nutrition Directors: This year, the Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) will not deliver posters for you to display at school or cards for you to distribute to students. Instead, you can use email to deliver the attached Parent Information Card PDF to all your students and inform them of how to find meal sites serving meals in the Summer Meal Programs. Federal regulations require SFAs to make this notification even if the SFA does not serve summer meals and I hope the email delivery will make compliance simpler for you.
The materials in the order form link below are for extra community promotion efforts. Contracting Entities operating Seamless Summer Operation be sure to provide notification as described in Administrator's Reference Manual (ARM), Section 12, Seamless Summer Operation (SSO).
