The study will collect a broad range of data from nationally representative samples of public SFAs and their state distributing agencies (SDA), schools, students, and parents/guardians during SY 2024-25 in the 48 contiguous states and DC. These data will provide needed information about how federally sponsored school meal programs are operating over the 10 years following implementation of major reforms, including new nutrition standards that went into effect in SY 2012-13 and more recent changes that will be in effect during SY 2024-25.

This new information collection request is for the 2024-25 National School Foods Study, which consists of three components: School Nutrition and Meal Cost Study-II (SNMCS-II), School Food Purchase Study (SFPS-IV), and an evaluation of the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program (FFVP).

The 2024-2025 National School Foods Study continues the long-standing commitment of FNS to periodically assess the NSLP and SBP as well as the FFVP. It will provide a comprehensive picture of these programs in SY 2024-25.


Comments regarding this information collection received by June 12, 2024 will be considered. Written comments and recommendations for the proposed information collection should be submitted within 30 days of the publication of this notice on the following website​public/​do/​PRAMain.
