Disaster Relief

 

Disaster Relief

As we all know from this past decade of flooding, schools and school food personnel can and do play an important role in situations where families are forced from their homes by floods, tornadoes, or other natural disasters.

Schools in most communities are among the most substantial and accessible public buildings available, and school officials should be aware that USDA donated foods on hand can be used immediately in disaster situations. Generally, the Red Cross, and/or other recognized relief agency officials handle responsibility for such emergencies.

When USDA foods and/or locally purchased foods are released from school stocks, it is necessary that a record of foods released be maintained. It is also necessary that some USDA foods and all locally purchased foods be replaced by the agency in charge of emergency operations, except when called upon directly by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA). Please feel free to call upon us if we can be of assistance.
