Child Nutrition Programs Questions and Answers
On April 19, 2021, the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) released Policy Memorandum CACFP 09-2021, SP 10-2021, SFSP 05-2021: Questions and Answers Regarding Child Nutrition Program (CNP) Oversight, Administration, and Reporting During COVID-19. Because program operators may be operating different programs at different times of the year than traditional operations, this policy memo provides guidance to clarify CNP oversight and administrative questions for State agencies and program operators.
The policy memo is available on the USDA Documents and Resources web page .
For updated information, program operators are directed to visit the California Department of Education (CDE) COVID-19 Guidance for CNPs web page and the CDE COVID-19 Frequently Asked Questions web page.
