Ensuring Year-long Eligibility in the School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs

The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) published an important guidance memo, Ensuring Year-long Eligibility in the School Lunch and School Breakfast Programs. This memo strongly encourages school districts to accept eligibility determinations from a transferring student’s former district to minimize disruptions to learning by ensuring that they have continuous access to school meals. The practices outlined in this memo would  improve children's access to school meals and to ensure that low-income children receive the meals for which they qualify.
