To: Summer Food Service Program Sponsors

Number: USDA-SFSP-03-2011

Attention: Food Program Director

Date: April 2011

Subject: Site Limits for Private Nonprofit Organizations in the Summer Food Service Program

Reference: The Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act of 2010, Public Law 111-296 United States Department of Agriculture Policy Memo SFSP 02-2011 dated January 14, 2011

This Management Bulletin (MB) notifies private nonprofit organizations (PNO) participating in the Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) of an increase in number of sites they can operate and the number of children they can serve without requesting a waiver from the California Department of Education (CDE).

Prior to October 1, 2010, PNOs could not operate more than 25 sites and could not serve more than 300 children at any one site unless they received a waiver from the CDE. Under Section 13(a)(7) of the Richard B. Russell National School Lunch Act, PNOs are now eligible to participate in the Summer Food Service Program according to the same terms and conditions as other service institutions. As a result, all sponsors may be approved to operate a maximum of 200 sites and serve a maximum total average daily attendance of 50,000 children.

Exceptions to these limits may be approved if the sponsor can demonstrate that it has the capability to manage a larger program. However, if a sponsor cannot properly manage the site increase, the state may impose a site limitation until the sponsor is able to demonstrate that they can successfully operate additional sites.

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