|Attention: Authorized Representatives|
This Management Bulletin provides recent clarification received
from U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), APB-SFS-98-22, regarding
commodity USDA Foods entitlements for
year round sponsors. The regulatory provision contained in Section
225.9(b), Commodity USDA Foods Assistance, of the Summer Food Service Program
(SFSP) applies to all sponsors regardless of when they operate.
Sponsors that are eligible to receive commodities USDA Foods under the SFSP
include those which prepare their own meals, those which contract
with a school food authority for the preparation of meals, and
school food authorities which procure SFSP meals from the same
food service management company from which they procured meals
for the National School Lunch Program during the last school session.
Each eligible sponsor is allowed one
offering allocation per year. Receipt
and delivery of commodity allocations USDA Foods are available May through
September August for eligible SFSP sponsors. Eligible year round sponsors
may request other arrangements by contacting Amy Bell, Commodity USDA Foods Consultant, at 916-322-5051.
