The National Association of Farmers' Market Nutrition Program directors held their first annual meeting in Baltimore, MD, on Oct. 7-9, 1993. At that meeting, a number of questions were raised during our program requirement session. Attached are these questions and our responses for your information.
It has come to our attention that several states are allowing child care conducted in buildings which are not private residences to be considered day care homes for purposes of CACFP. This memorandum clarifies our policy on the participation of group and family day care homes.
This policy is intended to clarify the issue of Farmers' Market Nutrition Program (FMNP) administrative funds for training and meetings and conferences as allowable administrative costs, as well as the circumstances under which WIC or FMNP administrative funds may be used.
Attached is the final version of Policy Memorandum 93-8, revised, based on your comments and suggestions, from the draft memorandum issued June 3, 1993.
The purpose of this memorandum is to clarify that the WIC vendor agreement/contract does not constitute a license or property interest .
PL 101-147 provided for additional administrative payments to sponsoring organizations wishing to expand into rural and low-income areas.
The purpose of this FNS Instruction is to provide guidance regarding the number of applications that must be reviewed by state agencies conducting verification of eligibility for free and reduced price meals under the Child and Adult Care Food Program.
WIC Program—Allowable Costs: Real Property
CACFP has long been recognized for its nutritional goals of providing nutritious meals to children and helping them establish good eating habits at a young age. Family style meal service provides a further opportunity to enhance these goals by encouraging a pleasant eating environment that will support and promote mealtime as a learning experience.
The WIC program does not have a specific legislative mandate to screen for lead poisoning. Even so, since 1979 FNS has supported CDC's lead poisoning initiative.
