The US Department of Agriculture has released new guidance regarding Paid Lunch Equity for School Year 2013-2014. The guidance clarifies that state agencies can exempt school meal programs from the paid lunch revenue requirements if they “can demonstrate that the required increase to paid lunch prices or revenue contributions would cause the SFA to exceed the three-month operating balance limit.” The guidance also expands the definition of a non-Federal source of funds to include paid breakfasts.
