Many school cafeteria workers have been working every single day since the pandemic caused the closures of schools. While some schools have previously not been able to hand out food for free due to large costs, Coronavirus has opened an opportunity for many schools and districts to provide school food free for children. After months of uncertainty, the USDA announced last month that the expansion would last until the end of the school year.
