For School Year 2022-2023, TDA has updated the sample letters to households to include the new nondiscrimination statement. However, to assist school districts in communicating the transition from free meal distribution to all students in SY 2021-2022 back to the standard free/reduced-price/paid model under NSLP, TDA recommends that districts use brand new resources located on the brand new Back to Student Meal Rates page. These resources can be emailed, sent home with students, or mailed with the applications.
