This web page provides highlights of key program requirements, policies and other necessary program information to operate the SNPs; it can also be used to help orient SNP food service directors, managers, and staff to the programs.

Beginning School Year 2022–23, California began implementing Universal Meals, which requires public school districts, county offices of education and charter schools to offer, at no cost, one nutritiously adequate breakfast and lunch that complies with the federal meal standards to all students each school day. This resource is meant to orient SNP Operators to related key program requirements, policies and other resources.
For more information regarding Universal Meals, visit the CDE California Universal Meals web page.
