Subject: Monitoring Sponsor Requirements for Community Child Nutrition Snack Project Sites

Reference: Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations Part 225

This Management Bulletin (MB) provides guidance for Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) sponsors regarding the required monitoring visits for sites that operate the after school Community Child Nutrition Snack Project (CCNSP).

SFSP sponsors are required to conduct the following visits for all new CCNSP sites:

At the beginning of the SFSP fiscal year (October 1), sponsors that have returning CCNSP sites with the same program staff operating the same site with no significant problems must conduct the following visits:

Sponsors who discover any site is having problems adhering to SFSP rules are to increase their monitoring visits of that site until a corrective action has effectively implemented.

Sponsors that have difficulties meeting these monitoring timelines may submit a request to begin their required visits the first week that children return to school or the first week that CCNSP snacks are served. The request must demonstrate that all required monitoring visits for all sites will be met.

Sponsors that only operate SFSP sites during the summer vacation and off-track periods must continue to follow the required monitoring timelines as outlined in Title 7, Code of Federal Regulations sections 225.14(c)(6) and 225.15(d)(2)(3). These sponsors may continue to request a waiver to omit the first week’s site visit.

If you have any questions regarding this MB, please contact Melissa Garza, SFSP Specialist, at 916-322-5885 or 800-952-5609, or by e-mail at
