On December 20, 2012, Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) issued policy memorandum SP 11-2013 REVISED, which gave State and local operators flexibility in meeting the weekly maximums for grains and meat/meat alternates in the National School Lunch Program for compliance purposes in School Year (SY) 2012-2013. The memorandum stated that State agencies should consider any school food authority (SFA) compliant with the weekly ranges for these two components if the FNS-developed or FNS-approved Certification Tool and required supporting documentation indicate the menu is compliant with the daily and weekly minimums.
