The Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act of 201, 7 CFR 210.10(a)(2) requires the schools identify, near or at the beginning of the serving lines, what foods constitute a unit priced reimbursable meal.
The Child Nutrition Program Administration has materials available, free of charge, to ensure School Food Authorities (SFA’s) are complying with this signage requirement.
With election of applicable waivers, current USDA flexibilities allow school food authorities (SFAs) the option to provide students learning remotely with access to meals on school days during the 2021-2022 School Year.
Non-congregate Meal Service*
Waives the requirement for meals to be served and consumed by students at school and allows meals to be provided outside of school.
The purpose of this memorandum is to notify School Food Authorities (SFAs) that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has announced a recall of whole, fresh, red, white, and yellow onions, grown in Mexico, due to potential contamination of Salmonella Oranienburg.
This memorandum provides School Food Authorities (SFAs) participating in the federal Child Nutrition Programs with clarification regarding student eligibility carryover in the 2021-2022 School Year (SY).
Additional clarification regarding eligibility carryover for the 2022-2023 SY is forthcoming from USDA and will be posted to the Child Nutrition Knowledge Center (CNKC) when received.
As schools plan for the upcoming school year, many are seeking to maximize nutrition for students during and beyond the school day. The At-Risk Afterschool Snack/Supper component of the NYS Department of Health’s Child and Adult Care Food Program (CACFP) provides an opportunity to serve complete meals to students in enrichment programs after school, on weekends, and/or during school holidays throughout the regular school year.
