Mike DeWine on Families & Children
Former Republican Sr Senator (OH, 1995-2007)
Got waiver to deliver school lunches to quarantined kids
Something very important for us, when we close the schools, we want to make sure that kids continue to get food. Department of Agriculture gave us a waiver within 24 hours, so we can actually take this food, this normal school lunch program, and take
it out to kids, distribute it in different areas. Some school districts are actually going to take that out, put it on a bus, and travel around and distributing it. But we have had to get a waiver from the federal government.
