This rule amends National
School Lunch Program (NSLP)
regulations to conform to requirements
contained in the Healthy, Hunger-Free
Kids Act of 2010 (Pub. L. 111–296)
regarding equity in school lunch pricing
and revenue from nonprogram foods
sold in schools. This rule requires
school food authorities (SFAs)
participating in the NSLP to provide the
same level of financial support for
lunches served to students who are not
eligible for free or reduced price lunches
as is provided for lunches served to
students eligible for free lunches. This
rule also requires that all food sold in
a school and purchased with funds from
the nonprofit school food service
account, other than meals and
supplements reimbursed by the
Department of Agriculture, must
generate revenue at least equal to the
cost of such foods.
