Webinar: New USDA Resources for Shelters Feeding Youth and Families Experiencing Homelessness
Date and Time: July 7th, 2-3pm ET
Join USDA, FRAC, and SchoolHouse Connection to hear about the expansion of USDA’s food program to allow children and young adults under 25 years old to receive healthy meals at emergency shelters. USDA’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) can help ensure that children and youth experiencing homelessness are fed healthy meals and snacks and that shelters remain financially sustainable during this difficult time. Participants will learn details of this new expansion, hear what this provision means for emergency shelter providers and the children and youth they serve, and receive tailored information on opportunities to implement this option and conduct outreach to help maximize the expansion. Participants will receive "hot off the press" outreach materials and will hear examples of innovative implementation and outreach strategies directly from youth-serving emergency shelter operators in the field.
