This Management Bulletin (MB) provides School Food Authorities (SFA) [Local Educational Agencies (LEA) participating in the school meal programs] with updated annual reimbursement rates for School Nutrition Programs (SNP) for School Year (SY) 2013–14.

Federal Reimbursement

The U.S. Department of Agriculture established the federal reimbursement rates for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), Special Milk Program (SMP), and Meal Supplements under the NSLP (also known as “Snacks”). These rates also apply to the Seamless Summer Feeding Option.

Please note the following changes in federal reimbursements:

The annual federal payments and rate adjustments for the NSLP and SBP reflect changes in the “Food Away From Home” series of the Consumer Price Index for All Urban Consumers. The annual rate adjustment for the SMP reflects changes in the Producer Price Index for Fluid Milk Products. All reimbursement rates (current and prior years) are available on the CDE Rates, Eligibility Scales, and Funding Web page at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/nu/rs/.

State Reimbursement

The 2013–14 State Budget Act provides for a cost of living increase for State Meal reimbursement; therefore, the Proposition (Prop) 98 State Meal rate for SNPs has increased from $0.2195 to $0.2229 for each free and reduced-price (F/RP) lunch and breakfast that eligible districts/agencies serve.  

The current 2013–14 state reimbursement rates apply as follows to each F/RP breakfast and lunch served at the following LEA types (see attached rate sheet for details on Prop 98 and Non-Prop 98 LEAs):
