Food and Nutrition Services Food Bank Partnership

Food and Nutrition Services Partners with Local Food Banks

Legislation sponsored by Representative Frank R. Wolf has enabled FNS to develop and foster a successful partnership with schools and local food banks. This partnership provides safe leftover foods from student lunches (school purchases and lunches brought from home) to local food banks. To ensure that food donations from student lunch leftovers are safe and healthy, FNS provides guidelines to assist schools with the implementation of the program in the Donation of Student School Meal Leftovers to Local Food Banks Memorandum of Understanding (SL 174).
