Comment Period End Date

This rulemaking proposes a change to the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) which was mandated by the Healthy Meals for Healthy Americans Act of 1994. The change allows SFSP meal service to be provided at non-school sites to children who are not in school due to unanticipated school closures during the months of October through April caused by a natural disaster, building repair, court order, or similar occurrence.

In addition, this rulemaking proposes discretionary changes to simplify the SFSP sponsor application and state monitoring requirements in order to eliminate unnecessary paperwork and reduce administrative burden for sponsors and state agencies.
