Policy Memorandum on Modifications to Accommodate Disabilities in the School Meal Programs
This policy memorandum includes important updates to requirements related to accommodating children with disabilities participating in the School Meal Programs. Previous Food and Nutrition Service (FNS) guidance on this issue was included in FNS Instruction 783-2, Rev. 2, Meal Substitutions for Medical or other Special Dietary Reasons. The attached memorandum supersedes that Instruction as it relates to the National School Lunch Program, School Breakfast Program, Special Milk Program (SMP) for Children, and the Fresh Fruit and Vegetable Program. Instruction 783-2, Rev. 2 remains in effect for the Child and Adult Care Food Program and the Summer Food Service Program until further guidance is issued, at which time Instruction
783-2 will be rescinded.
