Last summer, thanks to the efforts of 348 sponsoring organizations, more than 3,000 community sites -- a record number -- served up free, healthy meals and snacks to kids and teens across New York State.

Over the summer USDA published two important guidance memos explaining steps states and school districts can take to improve low-income children’s access to school meals. Now that the school year is underway, we encourage you to review them to see whether you could adopt any of these practices to ensure that low-income children receive the meals for which they qualify.
