Paid Lunch Equity: SY 2012-13 Calculations and Tool

Last Published: 04/16/2014

The interim rule entitled, “National School Lunch Program: School Food Service Account Revenue Amendments Related to the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010” requires school food authorities (SFAs) participating in the National School Lunch Program to ensure sufficient funds are provided to the nonprofit school food service account for lunches served to students not eligible for free or reduced price meals. There are two ways to meet this requirement: either through the prices charged for “paid” lunches or through other non-Federal sources provided to the nonprofit school food service account. This memorandum provides guidance on the calculations SFAs must make in order to ensure they are in compliance with these requirements for School Year 2012-13.
