Comment Request - Follow Up to An Assessment of the Roles and Effectiveness of Community-based Organizations in SNAP
The authority for this collection is provided for in the Child Nutrition Act of 1966. As required, FNS issued regulations which prescribes the methods for making payments of funds to state agencies to use for administrative expenses incurred in supervising and giving technical assistance in connection with activities undertaken by them under the National School Lunch Program, the Special Milk Program, the School Breakfast Program, the Child and Adult Care Food Program and the food distribution program.
Final Rule: Requirements for the Distribution and Control of Donated Foods & TEFAP: Implementation of the Agricultural Act of 2014
This rule revises and clarifies requirements to ensure that USDA donated foods are distributed, stored, and managed in the safest, most efficient, and cost-effective manner, at state and recipient agency levels. The rule also reduces administrative and reporting requirements for state distributing agencies, revises or clarifies regulatory provisions relating to accountability for donated foods, and rewrites much of the regulations in a more user-friendly, plain language, format.
Notice is hereby given that the national average minimum value of donated foods, or cash in lieu thereof, per lunch under NSLP and per lunch and supper under CACFP shall be 16.75 cents for the period July 1, 2006 through June 30, 2007.
