Purpose: Policy, Beneficial Information
To: School Nutrition Program Sponsors Number: USDA-SNP-32-2012
Attention: Food Service Director and Business Official Date: August 2012
Subject: Reimbursement Rates for the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, and Special Milk Programs for School Year 2012–13
Reference: Federal Register, Volume 71, Number 142, July 24, 2012; Fiscal Year 2012–13 California State Budget Act (Assembly Bill 1464, Statutes of 2012)

This Management Bulletin (MB) provides local educational agencies (LEA) with updated annual reimbursement rates for School Nutrition Programs (SNP) for school year (SY) 2012–13.

Federal Reimbursement

Included with this MB are the federal reimbursement rates established by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program (SBP), Special Milk Program (SMP), and Meal Supplements (Snacks) under the NSLP. These rates also apply to the Seamless Summer Feeding Option meals.

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 2012–13 State Budget Act does not provide for a cost of living increase for State Meal reimbursement; therefore, the Proposition (Prop) 98 State Meal rate for SNPs will remain at $0.2195 for each free and reduced-price (F/RP) lunch and breakfast that districts/agencies serve. The State Budget Act does, however, provide for an increase for growth. With this increase, and based on current projections, the appropriation of $156,624,000 appears sufficient to fund all eligible meals throughout SY 2012–13 without a change [decrease] in the rate.

As mentioned previously in the notice “Clarification of Elimination of State Meal Reimbursement,” the appropriation for the State Meal supplemental reimbursement, for sponsors not eligible to receive Proposition 98 funding, was eliminated from the State Budget for State Fiscal Year 2012–13.This funding was available to reimburse F/RP meals served by private schools, private child care centers, other private entities, and government entities that are not public school authorities.

The current 2012–13 state reimbursement rates apply as follows to each F/RP breakfast and lunch served at the following LEA types (see enclosed rate sheet for details on Prop and Non-Prop LEAs):
