TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Funding for most school lunch programs are run by the U-S Department of agriculture.
According to the School Nutrition Association, funding for these school lunch and breakfast programs would not be affected by the shutdown.
The USDA said in the case of a shutdown, child nutrition programs would continue to serve eligible people through state agencies and other grantees. All have funding available to operate through the month of February, and many have funds to continue operations through March.
Toledo Public Schools' director of food services made a statement responding to the shutdown.
Maumee Public Schools also said it would go about business as usual regardless of a shutdown.
Money would come out of the school's general fund and would not impact the ability to serve breakfast or lunch.
