This final rule provides WIC state agencies the option to exclude payments to military personnel for privatized housing, whether on or off military installations.
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.
