The targeted meal pattern flexibilities provided for this school year are to be utilized as needed. The Texas Department of Agriculture (TDA) expects CEs will seek to meet meal pattern requirements to the greatest extent possible. TDA will consider requests that are targeted and justified with demonstrated need based on plans to support access to nutritious meals while minimizing potential exposure to COVID-19 on a case-by-case basis.
