Notice to the Public

The McComb School District Child Nutrition Department is requesting a waiver from USDA to allow the Summer Food Service Program(SFSP) the use of Offer vs. Serve (OVS)  in its meal pattern. The McComb School District has been using OVS in its operation of the SFSP for many years. The use of OVS keeps plate waste down and allows the district to run a cost effective program.  This waiver will assist the district in continuing to provide this service to our community.
