Since our Jan. 22, 2007 memo “Vending Machines in the School Meal Programs,” SP03-2007, we have received numerous questions regarding how they may be used in the school meal programs. The attached Questions and Answers (Q&As) are provided in response to these questions and as additional guidance in the use of vending machines.
We continue to develop guidance on the operation and management of vending machines in the school meal programs and we expect to periodically add to these Q&As as the need arises. We will be making these Q&As available on the FNS website in the near future.
