Nutrition Services Division Management Bulletin

Purpose: Policy, Beneficial Information

To: School Nutrition Program Sponsors

Number: NSD-SNP-21-2010

Attention: Food Service Director and Business Official

Date: November 2010

Subject: Reimbursement Rates for the National School Lunch, School Breakfast, State Meal, and Special Milk Programs for School Year 201011 (revised to include State Reimbursement rates)

Reference: 201011 California State Budget Act - Senate Bill 870
Supersedes: Management Bulletin NSD-SNP-18-2010

This Management Bulletin (MB) reiterates and updates the annual reimbursement rates for Local Educational Agencies (LEAs) participating in School Nutrition Programs for school year 201011. In August and September 2010, we originally distributed and posted the federal reimbursement rates to the California Department of Education’s Web site at http://www.cde.ca.gov/ls/nu/rs/rates1011.asp. After the State Budget Act was enacted in mid-October 2010, we posted the State reimbursement rates in the California Nutrition Information and Payment System on October 22, 2010, and updated the Web page listed above. The State reimbursement rates are identified below and included on the attached rate sheet.

This MB includes the federal reimbursement rates established by the United States Department of Agriculture for the National School Lunch Program (NSLP), School Breakfast Program, Special Milk Program, and Meal Supplements (Snacks) under the NSLP. These rates also apply to the Seamless Summer Feeding Option Meals.

The new 201011 State (Meal) Reimbursement rates apply as follows (see attached rate sheet for further details) for each free and reduced-price breakfast and lunch served at:

  • Proposition (Prop) 98 LEAs participating in federal school nutrition programs, with annual Certification: $0.2195
  • Prop 98 LEAs participating in federal school nutrition programs, without annual Certification: $0.0000
  • Non-Prop 98 LEAs participating in federal school nutrition programs: $0.1562*

*The Non-Prop 98 State reimbursement rate was reduced from $0.1566 due to a reduction in the State Budget appropriation.

If you have any questions regarding the rates or this MB, please contact your SNP specialist. The specialist list is available in the Child Nutrition Information and Payment System Download Form section, Form ID Caseload. You can also contact an SNP Office Technician by phone at 916-322-3005 or 916-322-1450.
