Serving Meals During the COVID-19 Outbreak

The Center for Ecoliteracy and LunchAssist are hosting weekly Community of Practice Zoom calls on serving meals during COVID-19-related school closures. During these calls, we review the latest policy updates, tools, best practices, and lessons learned from school districts and allied organizations. We leave lots of time at the end for discussions and questions, too!
