Proposed Rule: SFSP Meal Service During the School Year, Paperwork Reduction, and Targeted State Monitoring
This rulemaking proposes a change to the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) which was mandated by the Healthy Meals for Healthy Americans Act of 1994. The change allows SFSP meal service to be provided at non-school sites to children who are not in school due to unanticipated school closures during the months of October through April caused by a natural disaster, building repair, court order, or similar occurrence.
The National School Lunch Act requires that schools that are participating in the National School Lunch or School Breakfast Programs claim reimbursements only for lunches or breakfasts which meet the nutrition standards of the National School Lunch Act, including compliance with the Dietary Guidelines for Americans.
