Proposed Rule: NSLP, SMP and CACFP State Administrative Expense Funds, Determining Eligibility for Free and Reduced Price Meals and Free Milk in Schools: Reimbursement for Snacks in Afterschool Care Programs
This proposed rule would incorporate the provisions of the William F. Goodling Child Nutrition Reauthorization Act of 1998 regarding reimbursement of afterschool snacks in the regulations governing the National School Lunch Program and the Child and Adult Care Food Program. Corresponding technical amendments are also proposed to the regulations governing the State Administrative Expense Funds and Determining Eligibility for Free and Reduced Price Meals and Free Milk in Schools. Under this proposed rule, certain afterschool care programs would earn reimbursement for snacks served which meet program requirements. This rule, as proposed, would be expected to increase consumption of nutritious snacks in afterschool care programs.
