<b><a href=https://form.jotform.com/212795081587163 target="_blank">Help us provide the most useful data by completing our ODP User Feedback Survey for Summer Meal Programs Data</a></b><p>

<b>About the Dataset</b><br>

In March 2020, USDA began allowing flexibility in nutrition assistance program policies in order to support continued meal access should the coronavirus pandemic (COVID-19) impact meal service operation. Flexibilities were extended into the 2021-2022 program year and allowed School Nutrition Programs to operate Seamless Summer Option through the 2021-2022 school year. The Seamless Summer Option is available to Program Year 2021-2022 School Nutrition Program CEs beginning October 1, 2021 through the end of the school year. <p>

For 2021 Seamless Summer Option participation prior to October 1, please refer to the <b><a href=https://data.texas.gov/dataset/Summer-Meal-Programs-All-Summer-Sites-Contact-and-/ixpn-g9tj target="_blank">Summer Meals Programs-All Summer Sites-Contacts and Program Participation Information-Program Period 2021</a>.</b> <p>

<b>A CE must have an approved School Nutrition Program application on file for the the program year for a CE to operate Seamless Summer Option. Therefore, CEs and sites listed in this Seamless Summer Option dataset may be providing meals under the School Nutrition Program. Please use School Nutrition Program and Seamless Summer Option claims data to determine which program a CE has selected to provide meals. </b><P>
